WalletHub recently released updated rankings for 2021’s States with the Most At-Risk Youth and South Carolina ranked as having the 8th most in the country.

To determine where young Americans are not faring as well as others in their age group, especially in a year made extremely stressful by the COVID-19 pandemic, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 15 key indicators of youth risk. The data set ranges from the share of disconnected youth to the labor force participation rate among youth to the youth poverty rate.

At-Risk Youth in South Carolina (1=Most at Risk; 25=Avg.):

  • 12th – % of Disconnected Youth
  • 19th – % of Youth Without a High School Diploma
  • 8th – % of Overweight & Obese Youth
  • 5th – Youth Labor Force Participation Rate
  • 23rd – Youth Poverty Rate
  • 10th – Share of Population Aged 12 and Older Fully Vaccinated
