Washington Ranked #1 In Top Ten Best States To Make A Living

In its fourth-annual study of the Best and Worst States to Make a Living, MoneyRates.com finds that work-related conditions vary widely among the 50 states. However, recent employment conditions appear to show some consistency: Eight of last year’s top 10 states for making a living are in the top 10 again this year.

This study’s rankings are based on each state’s Compensation and Quality Factor, a proprietary metric based on these factors:

  • Average salary, according to figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
  • Cost of living, based on data from C2ER.
  • Employment rate, based on BLS data.
  • Workplace conditions, based on the “Work Environment” component of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.
