This is a post I have on another blog of mine. Thought it might be of interest to some of you who are interested in the US.

In this post I am going to look at which states struggle the most economically. In addition I will try to include the worst and best schools of that state and finally I’ll see if there are high risk cities/towns/places in the state.

Although things are looking better in the US, they still have a ways to go economically. According to the US Census Bureau their latest numbers show that the ten poorest states are:

  1. Mississippi                   22,6 %
  2. New Mexico                21.5 %
  3. Louisiana                      20,4 %
  4. Arkansas                      19,5 %
  5. Georgia                        19,1 %
  6. Kentucky                     19,1 %
  7. Alabama                      19,0 %
  8. Arizona                        19,0 %
  9. South Carolina             18,9 %
  10. District of Columbia     18,7 %

Foreign exchange students are sent to all ten of these states.

  1. It’s almost like a scientific study trying to determine whether conservatism or progressivism is better for economic growth. The most conservative states are the worst off economically.
