In West Virginia, living a long and healthy life after 65 is not very good.

A study found that West Virginia had among the lowest numbers in states for life expectancy and healthy life expectancy for residents 65 years and over.

Retirement-age Mississippians fared worst, lending to the oft used West Virginia statement, "Thank God for Mississippi."

The Centers for Disease Control says place and race influence healthy life expectancy at age 65, U.S. with blacks across the country and whites in the South having the lowest healthy life expectancy after age 65.

West Virginia, in recent years, has been listed among the worst states in the USA related to health.

Hawaii is listed as the healthiest.
