Ridgewood NJ, With the U.S. government closed for business for the 21st time since 1976, this time with a partial shutdown, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on the States Most & Least Affected by the 2019 Government Shutdown to add some hard data to all the rhetoric.

WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia in terms of five key metrics, ranging from each state’s share of federal jobs to federal contract dollars per capita to the share of families receiving food stamps.

Impact of the Government Shutdown on New Jersey (1=Most Affected, 25=Avg.):

45th – Share of Federal Jobs
31st – Federal Contract Dollars Per Capita
39th – Access to National Parks
43rd – % of Families Receiving SNAP (Food Stamps)

  1. Please change the picture.
    Obama shut down the World War II Memorial to generate press coverage.
    Today the World War II Memorial is wide open, just a little messy near the garbage cans because apparently we need federal government employees to empty the garbage.

  2. we could not find a decent pic of anything shut down
