Iowa #3 Best-Run State
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
According to a 24/7 Wall Street survey, Iowa is number 3 in a national list for the best-run states in the nation.
Researchers looked at financial data, the services provided, and each state's standard of living.
They say Iowa ranked high because of its perfect credit rating, high home values, low unemployment and underemployment rates, and small budget shortfall gap.
Only North Dakota and Wyoming rated higher.
