WalletHub recently released its study on states that had populations that were the most vulnerable to the coronavirus and South Carolina ranked as having the 9th most vulnerable population in the country.
To identify which states have the highest concentration of vulnerable people, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 28 key metrics in 3 overall categories: medical vulnerability, housing vulnerability and financial vulnerability. Their data set ranges from the share of the population aged 65 and older to the share of the homeless population that is unsheltered and the share of the entire population living in poverty. Below, you can see highlights from the report, along with a WalletHub Q&A.
Coronavirus Vulnerability in South Carolina (1=Most, 25=Avg.):
- 10th – Share of Population Aged 65 & Older
- 13th – Share of Population Diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- 11th – Share of Unsheltered Homeless Population
- 29th – Share of Households in Poverty Not Receiving Food Stamps
- 21st – Unemployment Insurance Recipiency Rate
