The U.S. economy grew only 1.8% in 2013, but these 10 states outpaced the nation.
Like Wyoming, West Virginia's economy has been on a coal-mining roller coaster.
After contracting in 2012, the state economy grew 5% in 2013, driven almost entirely by gains in its mining sector.
Overall, West Virginia still grapples with large problems, though. The whole state added only 900 jobs in 2013.
