Ohio In Top 20 For Working Dads

The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials 2017

The buckeye state, at least according to personal finance site Wallethub, is a pretty good place to be a working Dad.

Their latest study involves Dads ahead of Father's Day Sunday, and Ohio finds themselves at number 16.

In order to determine the best states for men who play a dual role of parent and provider, WalletHub compared the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia across 22 key indicators of friendliness toward working fathers. The data set ranges from average length of work day for males to child-care costs to share of men in good or better health.

Among the key factors, Ohio ranks 8th in Economic and Social Well-Being.

Wallethub adds that nearly 93 percent of dads with kids younger than 18 are employed, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But some working dads, those who live in states with greater economic opportunity and quality of life, have it better than others.

The number one state to be a working Dad? Massachusetts. The worst? Louisiana. You can see the full report by clicking here.
