Ore-- A new study shows that Oregon is one of the worst places in the country for seniors to live. Oregon ranks 45th out of 50 states and D.C.

The study used data from the US census bureau looking at five categories: fraud, housing costs, seniors living in poverty, seniors living alone and violent-injury deaths in seniors.

Iowa is ranked the safest state for seniors. California came in 43rd. Florida came in last as the least safe state.
