Species statistics are good news for South Carolinas standings
Placeholder Image
By Austin Jenkins One topic we are understandably reluctant to talk about here in South Carolina is our rankings in certain statistics relative to other states. To name a few examples, on a scale where one is the best, we are ranked 49th in diabetes, 39th in smoking, 42nd in obesity, 45th in violent crime, 47th in high school graduation and 48th in per capita income. Even my father-in-law’s accusation was confirmed a few weeks ago when a study revealed we are 49th in driving skills (although he admitted to being off by one).
