2015’s Best and Worst States for Working Dads

From Wallet Hub, June 17, 2015

With Father’s Day approaching and nearly 93 percent of dads with kids younger than 18 in the labor force in 2014, the leading personal finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis on the Best & Worst States for Working Dads.

In order to help dads balance their dual role as parent and provider, WalletHub analyzed the work-life balance, health conditions, financial well-being and child-rearing environments for working dads in the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. We did so using 20 key metrics, which range from the unemployment rate for dads with kids younger than 18 to male life expectancy to day care quality.

Hawaii scores 51st for "median income for families (dad present) with kids younger than 18 adjusted for cost of living"
