A new analysis of the 35-day partial government shutdown shows that Illinois ranked number 41 among the 50 states and the District of Columbia on how it was affected by the shutdown.

According to an analysis by WalletHub.com on how the states were affected by the federal government shutdown, Illinois ranked Number 41.

The study gave Illinois a score of 24.76 out of 100.

The factors that the analysis was based on were: share of federal jobs, federal contract money per capita, share of families receiving food stamps funds, real estate as a percentage of the state economy (since mortgage processing hinges on federal agency staffs) and residents’ access to national parks.

The study found that “blue states” were slightly more affected by the shutdown than “red states” were.

The average ranking for “blue-leaning” states was 24.81, while the average for “red-leaning” states was to 26.83.

The federal shutdown that recently ended January 25th set the record for the longest government shutdown.
