The state ranked No. 21 most affected when looking at six metrics, including share of federal jobs and contracts to the percentage of kids covered by CHIP. Its ranking likely was driven in part by its national parks, which are affected by the shutdown.

Not surprisingly, Washington, D.C., was most affected followed by nearby Maryland and Virginia.

Minnesota was least affected.
