When it comes down to choosing your next and hopefully permanent place to live, there is a lot to take into consideration. For instance, you worry about how the economy will stand out, how the education system is, what the weather will be year round, and how safe it is to live there. 

That's why WalletHub did the dirty work for you and ranked all 50 states based on several factors, including affordability, economy, education and health, quality of life, and safety! Each was ranked on a 20-point scale. Here is how New Jersey stacked up in each of the categories:
