Virginia is the eighth most successful state in the U.S., according to a list created by career site Zippia.

Researchers analyzed every state’s poverty level, median household income, and underemployment rate to create the list.

The criteria was taken from the 2010-2014 American Community Survey.

Here’s the list:

  1. New Hampshire
  2. Maryland
  3. Minnesota
  4. North Dakota
  5. Hawaii
  6. Wyoming
  7. Alaska
  8. Virginia
  9. Utah
  10. Massachusetts

According to Zippia, Virginia had the eighth highest median income. Residents were the ninth least impoverished and the 14th least likely to be unemployed.
