What do you consider when looking for a place to live? School districts, crime rates, cost of living and so on. Have you ever considered the zombie apocalypse?

Well, Estately Real Estate Search did, and they looked at several factors when mapping out which are the States most likely to survive in a zombie apocalypse.

The criteria Estately looked at included: Fewest people per square-mile, gun owners per capita, percentage of those who are cremated instead of buried, percentage of the population that is physically active and interest in the zombie media genre.

Their research included the 2014 U.S. Census,, National Funeral Directors Association, The State of Obesity and Google Trends.

Although Michigan didn’t make the top of the list, we do seem to stand a pretty good chance coming in at 26. So, we just have to be a little bit more vigilant if a zombie apocalypse happens.

According to Estately’s research, Michigan is the 29th for fewest people per square mile; 29th for gun owners; 19th for people who are cremated;39th for the percentage of people who are physically active and 18th for people who are interested in zombies in general.

The best place to live in the event of a zombie outbreak is Alaska, while New York came in last.
