A lot has been written about the national economy during the time of President Biden’s predecessor, but the Trump economy you experienced had a lot to do with where you lived during his time in office.

GOBankingRates looked at four key metrics from all 50 states and the District of Columbia using data from the State Economic Monitor, created by the Urban Institute’s State and Local Finance Initiative, a joint Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center project.

The analysis examines the unemployment rate and average weekly earnings when Trump took office in January 2017 and when he left in January 2021, the year-over-year (YoY) home value percentage change in the first quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of 2021, and the state GDP from the first quarter of 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2020.

Here’s a snapshot of the health of the economy in every state when Trump was president.
