Survival Homestead: Categories To Determine Which State Is Best

I’ve used many criteria when ranking the states for suitability as a Survival Homestead or Bug Out Location, and have included other criteria for consideration even if they don’t factor into the rankings:


  • Suitability for growing plants
  • Consideration for heating and cooling
  • Drought tendency
  • Renewable energy potential: solar, wind & biomass


  • Taxes
  • Cost of living
  • Income potential
  • Poverty & Welfare
  • Unemployment Rate
  • Cost of Buying a Home

Other criteria:

  • Gun laws
  • Crime
  • Population density
  • Proximity to nuclear power plants
