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''
