New research shows that Wyoming is the best state to enjoy your retirement.

Officials looked at several factors including weather, cost of living, crime rate, tax burden and health care.

"This really wasn't a popularity contest, I wasn't looking for where people are going," said Chris Kahn, research and statistic analyst with Bankrate.com. "I was really wanting to look at what some of the main issues people should be thinking about if they're going to be making a move."

Arkansas ended up in last place.

Oklahoma came in at 40th.

While the state ranked next to last in health care quality, Oklahoma ranked fourth in cost of living.

"Our cost of living scores looked at how much it cost to buy a home, apartment rent, everything down to what it costs for a loaf of bread," said Kahn. "Oklahoma was our fourth best value when it comes to straight up cost of living."
