Description: Mississippi and New Mexico are neck and neck with the percentage of their population living in poverty. I found this interesting since they are fairly distant from each other and seemingly largely different. New Hampshire had the lowest poverty rate, but surprisingly, they didn’t have the lowest number of personal crimes committed. North Dakota had the least, and though North Dakota’s poverty level was 4.1 % higher than New Hampshire, they had lower numbers of crimes across the board than New Hampshire. This was interesting to me.
