Where does Alabama rank among the states?

That would depend on what category you are looking for statiatics on. The statistics are all over the place, for example:

• First place in an alphebetical listing of States.

• 30th in total area.

• 22nd in admission to Statehood.

• 23rd in population.

• 26th in population density.

• 7th best unemployment rate.

• 45th in income.

• 3rd highest state in obesity, poor marks in health, minimum wage, and poverty.

No State is ideal in every test and standard, and no State is at the bottom of the scale in evry rating about quality of life.
