Arizona ranked number three nationally for state economies with the most racial equality, according to a study released by WalletHub.

The study specifically quantified disparities between white and black people across eight economic measures.

All 50 states and Washington, D.C., were ranked by disparities in median annual household income, labor-force participation rate, unemployment rate, homeownership rate, poverty rate, homeless rate, share of unsheltered homeless and share of executives.

The top states with the most economic equality between black and white people were Alaska in first place, followed by New Mexico and Arizona.
