Upper Midwest and Western States are really populated with common sense type people who work hard and spend wisely.
Many states at bottom of list are like the Federal and State Government(s). Spend now, figure it out later.
South Dakota is a state where most jobs are at, or barely above, minimum wage. Many people have to work more than one job just to pay our high rents and utilities. South Dakota has gotten a lot of media coverage about our credit worthiness and business friendly atmosphere. However, they forget to talk about the thousands of disenfranchised people in South Dakota who can't get jobs because they live on Native American reservations where there are no businesses and no jobs. As a researcher, I seriously question how these so called great statistics are being derived. Maybe they just leave out 10% of the population who are barely surviving.
Credit score= Worthy Humans
The pathetic relationship between good scores and bad is what is wrong with the whole system of rating individuals as worthy or not. When you die ..NO one cares about your damn score. Live life now as you never know when your going to be called up and never lived life, all sit around and care about there score and what the Government and banks want you to think.
The south hates Unions. Ironic how they are the poorest states in most cases with the least educated people? I think not. They are idiots in the south. They want insurance and pensions like everyone else but they just arent smart enough to know how to get that stuff. And they hate on the states with people that are smart enough to know how to get them and has those things.
Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee having the worst credit scores doesnt surprise me at all. I am surprised Indiana and Illinois were on the top 10 worst list.
