WalletHub published a report Wednesday that found the best and worst states for working moms.
The personal finance website analyzed all 50 states, plus Washington, D.C., based on 17 measurements within three categories: child care, professional opportunities and work-life balance.
Aside from the overall ranking, WalletHub also found how states ranked within those specific measurements.
For example, Mississippi was the state with the lowest child care costs as a percentage of median women’s income, while Nebraska had the highest.
New York ranked in first place as the state with the best day care system while Idaho ranked last.
WalletHub also found that Washington, D.C., had the highest female executive-to-male executive ratio and Utah had the lowest.
