I am 68 years old, and I am retired according to the federal government. But to me, retirement means retiring from life, or death. So, since I'm using what little I do know to educate myself in order to increase my income and to possibly be able to help those who are less fortunate, the first thing I would suggest to anyone is to get the idea of retirement out of your mind. In retirement, you're helping death, poverty, and God knows what else. Remember, we create our own reality, whether that be poverty, heath, or weath, by the way we think. Am I happy with thinking that I can create my own reality? Yes, I am. It allows me to keep striving to create a better reality for myself through thought. Also, I keep reminding myself that 'as man thinketh so is he'.
Dumb stats. One reason a high number of people are below the "federal" set poverty line is they are low cost of living states. You can survive on less, vs Ca., NY, Mass etc.
Check the housing costs etc.
As to life expectancy, one thing these states all have in common is historically high % of diabetes, and other cultural/dietary related issues. Eat a high fat, high fried food diet in Minn and you will shorten your life. Be a vegan in Miss, and you will likey not weigh 300 lbs. and have heart issues.
