My guess would be either Minnesota, Ohio or Virginia. They seem to be "good deals" when it comes to typical wages versus cost of rent, food, and so on. The worst would definitely include New York, California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Mississippi.

This does not surprise me, those states are dirt poor in my experience. Interesting how Wyoming is so rich though.

Wyoming has a LOT of ranching in it. Also, rich people like to live there.
