Dayton Daily News had a story two weeks ago about Beavercreek being ranked the No. 1 Dayton-area suburb by Niche. Here are the top seven reasons why Beavercreek is No. 1.

Zippia, a data collection website, has just published their results of the top 10 laziest states in the United States.

Ohio was ranked No. 6 in the lineup due to low hours worked and the percentage of the population in the workforce.  According to Zippia’s data 63.3 percent of Ohioans are in the labor force and they work on average 37.9 hours per week.

The No. 1 state in the United States that was deemed the laziest was New Mexico. It was deemed the laziest due to low number of bachelor’s degree, with just under 15 percent of the population having the degree, having the 10th lowest numbers of workers per household and the 17th lowest hours worked per week. Their labor force is made up of 600.2 percent of their population with an average of 38.2 hours worked per week.

Zippa decided the laziest state based off of the following criteria:

  • Lowest average hours worked
  • Shortest commute time
  • Fewest workers per household (Labor force divided by the number of households)
  • Highest unemployment rate
  • Fewest adults with a college degree
