Minnesota Considered Economically Secure

Minnesota is the fifth most economically secure state, the Rockefeller Foundation and Yale University professor Jacob Hacker said in a recent report.

Using their Economic Security Index, the report indicates that one of six Minnesotans experienced large economic losses in 2010. Between 2008 and 2010, only New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Connecticut and Washington had higher economic security rates than Minnesota.

The most insecure states were Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, Florida and Georgia.
