Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - A WalletHub survey released today found that Alaska ranks first in Job resignation rates in the last 12 months.
As the economy has started to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a surge in job openings, with some employers having a difficult time filling all their open positions.
The rate at which people quit their jobs isn’t the same across the whole country, though. WalletHub took a look at the data to rank the 50 states and the District of Columbia based on how frequently people are leaving their places of employment.
Their findings show that in the last 12 months Alaska's resignation rate was at 3.80% and that in the latest month, the rate was 5.20%.
In contrast, the states with the lowest resignation rate in the last 12 months were New York, Hawaii, Washington, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia with a rate of 2.00%. New York though did have the lowest rate in the latest month at 1.83%.
Data used by WalletHub to create the ranking were obtained from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
