Right To Work, poverty, and health [View all]

In responding to other OP about Right to Work I obtained data for poverty and health at the state level from two sources:

The Research SUPPLEMENTAL POVERTY MEASURE: 2011, Table 4
http://www.census.gov/prod/2012pubs/p60-244.pdf

America's Health Ranking report
http://www.americashealthrankings.org/ALL/2012

I grouped the data into Non Right to Work states and Right to Work states and calculated the following:

POVERTY

15.78 per 1,000 poverty rate in states without a right-to-work law
15.80 per 1,000 poverty rate in states with a right-to-work law
and
58% of those in poverty live in states without a right-to-work law.
42% of those in poverty live in states with a right-to-work law.

HEALTH
0.30 value for non right to work states average
-0.23 value for right to work states average

Hope someone will check my numbers.
