- They looked at each state’s accident mortality rate and accident death rates, number of official natural disasters (since 1953), number of Powerball winners and unemployment rates.

- The Lone Star state has a 39.7% rate of accidental deaths, and 360 natural disasters.
- It has also had only two Powerball winners, with an unemployment rate of 6.9%
