JACKSON, Miss. – “Worst economy in the country” is the title that no one wants.
Unfortunately for Mississippi, that’s the crown that has been bestowed upon it.
Finance website WalletHub looked at three key factors in determining the best and worst economies in the U.S.: Economic Health, Economic Activity and Innovation Potential.
Results of the study showed that Mississippi’s economy struggled when it came to GDP growth, business startup activity, annual median household income and unemployment rate.
The states just ahead of Mississippi are Arkansas and West Virginia.
The best three economies in the U.S. were Utah, Washington and California.
