In a study released Friday, WalletHub reported on states with the biggest increase in their unemployment ranks.
The study looked at unemployment rates on a monthly basis and year-over-year from April 2019 to April 2020. Of all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Ohio ranked as the 10th biggest increase in unemployment.
From April 2019 to April 2020, Ohio has seen a 388.93% increase in unemployment, which is the 13th highest increase in the United States.
For the month of April 2020, Ohio was the 5th highest state in unemployment at 17.4%.
"Aside from financial assistance, the best way for states to support unemployed residents is to facilitate a safe reopening that allows businesses to start rehiring," said WalletHub analys Jill Gonzalez when asked what states can do to support people who are unemployed.
According to the study, Connecticut has seen the smallest increase in unemployment at a 65% increase from January 2020 to April 2020, compared to Ohio's 238.92%.
