A few great stats our partners at Greater MSP (the organization) have listed about our region:

As a state, Minnesota ranks sixth in United Health Foundation’s annual listing of the healthiest states. It places especially low in occupational fatalities, premature deaths and sick days – all of which are good news for employers. Its hospitals routinely score among the best and safest in the nation.

The Greater MSP region leads the country in health and fitness, according to the American Fitness Index. The index measures health indicators and fitness markers – including access to parks, walking paths and farmers’ markets. (American College of Sports Medicine, 2011)

Cost of Living

The 2010 CPI for the 13-county Greater MSP region was 212, six points below the US city average. The CPI reflects the average price that people pay for food, clothing, shelter, fuel, transportation, medical care and day-to-day living.
