There is an infograph on howmuch.net and business insider

How much each state contributes to the US economy - Business Insider

"In terms of states, California (13.3%), Texas (9.5%), and New York (8.1%) have by far the largest economies. The states with the smallest economies are Vermont (0.2%), Maine, Rhode Island, North and South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, and Alaska (all representing about 0.3% of the US economy)., Southeast (21.3%), Far West (18.6%) were the largest regions

"Texas increased the size of its economy by almost $300 billion, more than any other state, growing from 8.8% of the US economy in 2011 to 9.5% in 2014. "

How much did each state receive in federal payments and subsidies? True accountability balances black ink against the red.

https://wallethub.com/edu/states-mos...0/#red-vs-blue Kind of a mixed bag in terms of what states receive the most federal money and how the ROI is.

I think the OP link is more accurate. States with large Native American population always show as being hugely dependent on the government when that is not always the case. The reservations receive a large chunk of money.

Has the Texas economy been able to weather the significant drop in oil and natural gas prices--which is likely to be ongoing in 2016 from what I read? I'd imagine the bloom is coming off the economic rose down there.

That would mainly affect Houston; DFW, Austin, and San Antonio will be fine.
