Connecticut is one of the best states for women, according to a new survey.

In light of Women’s History Month, the personal finance website WalletHub released the results of its “2016’s best and worst states for women” study.

Researchers looked at 15 key metrics like median earnings for female workers, women’s preventative health care and uninsured rate.

In the survey, Connecticut finished 11 out of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Broken down further, the state’s “women’s economic and social well-being” rank was 14 and its “women’s health care and safety” rank is 7.

Minnesota, Vermont and New Hampshire topped the list as first, second and third, respectively.

South Carolina and Louisiana were the worst states, according to WalletHub.

The site said women outnumber men in all but nine states. Women also represent about three-fifths of all minimum-wage workers.
