    • Number of pharmacists: 17
    • Location quotient: 36
    • Cost-of-living: 2

    Coming in at number 10 (number 41 on the complete list of states) is the Hoosier State. The two biggest factors sinking Indiana to the bottom of the rankings are the population’s overall well-being and the number of pharmacy robberies (there were 71 reported robberies in 2016).

    On the positive side, Indiana ranks number two in cost-of-living and ranks highest on this list for number of residents with health insurance—88.6% of Hoosiers had access to prescription medications in 2015.
