Wicked Zombies



Given the incredible bounty of zombie movies and television shows that we’re exposed to on a daily basis, it’s almost certain that an apocalypse will happen. But will your state most likely survive it? Yes… if you live in Alaska, Wyoming, or Colorado.

The popular real estate website Estately recently released its Zombie Apocalypse Preparedness Rankings to determine which U.S. States have the best likelihood of surviving an actual apocalypse, and which have the best chance of total obliteration (i.e., not surviving).

Eleven different metrics were used to determine the rankings including active military personnel, gun ownership per capita, the number of those who are (or who are interested in becoming) triathletes, and overall knowledge of zombie culture.

Rounding out the top 10 states with Alaska (1), Wyoming (2), and Colorado (3) are:

4. Idaho

5. New Mexico

6. Montana

7. Arizona

8. Nevada

9. New Hampshire

10. Wisconsin.


Basically, if you live toward/in the West or in any rural state, you’re a shoo-in to survive.

The least-likely-to-survive-during-a-zombie-apocalypse states (as well as Washington, DC) are:


42. Massachusetts

43. Tennessee

44. Louisiana

45. Alabama

46. Connecticut

47. Georgia

48. New York

49. Washington, D.C.

50. Mississippi

51. New Jersey.


So if you happen to live anywhere in the East (north or south), Godspeed. I live in Ohio, which ranks at No. 25. So we Ohioans have a 50/50 chance of survivability. Yay?

The rankings also found these interesting tidbits:

  • Florida, where a zombie apocalypse will most likely begin, ranks at No. 32.

  • Since Alaskans run from bears and moose (is this accurate?), they’ll have no problem running from slow-moving zombies … unless the zombies are fast like in 28 Days Later.

  • Though Jersey ranks last, the state does offer a real Zombie Survival Course.

Where does your state rank?
