- Property Crime Rates
- Median Home Values

- Adult Education Levels
- Health Insurance Coverage
- Poverty Rates
We then ranked each county in Wyoming across each of the criteria from one to 21, with one being the best.

The result is some of the safest, quiet, and best counties to raise a family in the Equality State.
