According to Wallet Hub, a personal finance and economic research group, Iowa is the 12th safest state in the country, the Des Moines Register reported on June 2.
When it comes to financial safety, which focuses on foreclosure, unemployment rates, and health insurance, Iowa ranked seventh. Furthermore, Iowa ranked eighth in road safety, not surprisingly as it was also the fifth lowest in pedestrian and cyclist fatalities.
Iowa’s least safe rankings are in the fields of workplace safety (36th) and natural disasters (37th).
