How much is the Federal Government Shutdown affecting Nebraska? A new study indicates we may be relatively lucky.

The personal finance website Wallet Hub studied all 50 states, and the District of Columbia, combining 5 statistics: Share of federal jobs, share of federal contract dollars per capita, real estate as a percent of gross state dollars, percent of families receiving food stamps, and highest access to national parks. Predictably, the District of Columbia came out most affected.
Minnesota was #51, least affected. Nebraska came out #49.

The State’s rankings in each category are as follows:

27th – Share of Federal Jobs
48th – Federal Contract Dollars Per Capita
50th – Real Estate as a Percentage of GSP
44th – % of Families Receiving SNAP (Food Stamps)

The scores by State:
