Study Rates Wyoming As 10th-Hardest Working U.S. State
A study by the financial website Wallethub ranks Wyoming as the 10th-hardest working U.S. state.
According to the website, Wallethub used the following methodology in its survey:
In order to determine where the hardest-working Americans live, WalletHub compared the 50 states across two key dimensions: “Direct Work Factors” and “Indirect Work Factors.”
We evaluated those dimensions using ten key metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the “hardest-working.”
We then determined each state’s weighted average across all metrics to calculate its overall score and used the resulting scores to rank-order the states.
Here is how Wyoming ranked in some key categories:
''How Hard Does Wyoming Work? (1=Best, 25=Avg.)
- 2nd – Avg. Workweek Hours
- 22nd – Employment Rate
- 13th – Share of Workers with Multiple Jobs
- 23rd – Annual Volunteer Hours per Resident''
