In another reminder of Nevadans’ weak personal finances, a new report ranks the Silver State among the bottom of the pack for financial literacy.
Personal finance website WalletHub on Wednesday released a report that ranked Nevada 42nd among the states and the District of Columbia, or 10th lowest in the country, for financial literacy.
WalletHub gave Nevada low marks on a range of topics, including the share of adults who spend more than they earn (37th); percentage of unbanked households (39th); share of adults who borrow from nonbank lenders (46th); and the state’s public high school graduation rate (49th).
Overall, it ranked New Hampshire first for financial literacy, and Louisiana last at No. 51.
