With Mother’s Day less than a week away and solo moms with young children constituting nearly three-quarters of all working women, the personal-finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2016’s Best & Worst States for Working Moms.
In order to help ease the burden on an under served segment of the population, WalletHub’s analysts compared the attractiveness of each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia to a working mother. WalletHub did so using 13 key metrics such as median women’s salary, female unemployment rate and day-care quality.
