Despite glowing press conference announcements by Gov. Jim Justice, West Virginia has yet again landed at the bottom of another economic list.

This time the state has ranked 50th as the poorest State in the United States.

The survey by 24/7 Wall Street based its low findings for the Mountain State on the median household income.

West Virginia also ranks among the worst in a number of other key socioeconomic indicators such as unemployment rate, poverty rate, and percentages of families who earn less than $10,000.

The state has a poverty rate of 19.1%.
