Thank god for Redditors, a fact check.

Not a very accurate list. Fact checks on a few of them:

WY is 3rd in suicides, Alaska is #1. http://www.insidermonkey.com/blog/10-states-with-the-highest-suicide-rates-most-depressing-and-suicidal-states-1261/

CA and most north east states have higher day care than OR. http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/nation/2007-06-20-day-care-table_N.htm

CA, UT, CO, AL have more bankruptcies than TN. http://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/state-us-bankruptcy-filing-statistics-1276.php

TX is in the middle of the pack in graduation. http://www.americashealthrankings.org/ALL/Graduation/

WI is #5 on the drunkest state list. NH is #1: http://www.mainstreet.com/slideshow/lifestyle/drunkest-states-america
