In the study, West Virginia was ranked 50 out of 50, with Kentucky coming in at number 48. Ohio followed closely behind, ranking in at 40th out of 50 states. West Virginia also ranked 49th in number of job opportunities and unemployment rate.

The Mountain state came in near bottom at 48th for median annual income.

WalletHub evaluated Job Market and Economic Environment using 33 relevant metrics.
