Unemployment rate: 6.1%
2010 GDP: $381 billion
Median household income: $60,363

Even with pockets of high unemployment in some rural areas, Virginia's economy is doing quite well compared to most states. With its close proximity to Washington, D.C., the northern part of the state has been buoyed by federal stimulus spending over the last few years.
