    • Number of pharmacists: 33
    • Location quotient: 48
    • Cost of living: 45

     Pharmacists in Connecticut enjoy a fairly high education level and low crime rate, including pharmacy robberies (only three were reported in 2016). Health insurance coverage for The Constitution State came in at number 10, which was a respectable showing.

    The state ranked pretty high for cost of living, but was number four in financial savviness, which is helpful for those pharmacists who earned a couple thousand below the national average, at $120,780.
