Florida may not be an ideal place for millennials when it comes to economic opportunity. According to a recent study released by WalletHub, Florida is the No. 10 worst state for millennials.
"Millennials have come of age and entered the workforce in the shadow of the Great Recession, which has significantly reduced their job prospects and earning potential for decades to come," the study said.
The study ranked each state based on affordability, education and health, quality of life, economic opportunity and civic engagement. Florida has fourth-lowest percentage of millennials overall, the second-lowest percentage of millennials with health insurance and the fourth-highest percentage of millennials living with their parents.
The best states for millennials include the District of Columbia at No. 1, North Dakota at No. 2 and Minnesota at No. 3. The worst states included New Mexico, followed by West Virginia and Mississippi.
