Nevada Rated Among Nation’s Worst At Understanding Managing Money
Congratulations, Nevada. When it comes to spending more than you earn and just being bad at understanding how to manage money, there's almost nobody that ranks lower than you.
Wallet Hub has used a zillion different metrics to determine how states rank for understanding money management including spending more than your income, taking out loans from places other than banks, etc. Nevada came in at #49.
Idaho came in at a respectable #17, in case you're wondering. The Pacific Northwest, in general, did not do well. Washington state came in at #34 while Oregon is #38.
You have to cut Nevada a little slack since they have a slot machine waiting for them around just about every corner.
