The Commonwealth ranked 35th out of 50 states and the District of Columbia for racial integration, according to a recent study done by WalletHub. 

Massachusetts ranks 24th in the employment an wealth category and 42nd in the education and civic engagement rank. 

Massachusetts ranks behind Connecticut and Wyoming at 33rd and 34th respectively while ranking behind Colorado and Vermont at 36th and 37th respectively. 

Hawaii ranks as the best state for racial progress while Minnesota ranks as the worst.

Racial Progress Over Time 

WalletHub also conducted a second study that shows that Massachusetts ranks 22 for racial progress over time. 

Mass ranks behind Rhode Island and Wyoming at 20 and 21 while ahead of South Carolina and Connecticut at 23 and 24 respectively.  

Georgia ranks as the best state for racial progress while Maine ranks as the worst.

The Study 

In order to measure the current integration level of each state, and racial progress over time, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across two dimensions, including "employment and wealth" and "education and civic engagement." 

WalletHub put together 10 relevant metrics and give them a value of 0 to 100, 100 being the best value. 

Most integrated was measured by  subtracting from the value attributed to whites the value attributed to blacks for a given metric, using only the most recent data available.

WalletHub measured Racial Progress by calculating the difference between whites and blacks for a given metric, using the oldest available data and the most recent. Based on the result, WalletHub calculated the percentage of progress for that specific metric in the analyzed period.

The states are then ranked using the weighted average across all metrics.
