WalletHub breaks down the categorical rankings that led to the overall rankings. The list includes categories like most and least hours worked per week, with Alaska topping the former and Utah the latter. Kentucky came in with the lowest job security, while the good people of Delaware are quite secure in the jobs, even if their state is smaller than average.
Mississippi proved to be the state with the lowest credit scores, while North Dakota and Minnesota topped the other end of the spectrum. Mississippi also has the largest percentage of the state's population living below the poverty line, while New Hampshire sits at the other end of that category.
Other key stats include divorce rate, access to affordable housing, the percentage of adults in fair to poor health, crime rate, psychologists per capita, and average hours of sleep per night.
