America, you’ve come a long way in 10 years.

Back in 2009, the nation was just emerging from the deepest economic downturn since the Great Depression. There wasn’t a lot of hope in the air.

Flash forward a decade: Despite some signs of economic softness here and there, the country continues to chug ahead in what has become the longest economic expansion in modern American history.

Yes, times are much better today. And some states are doing particularly well.

WalletHub recently compared data across the 50 states and ranked the states according to 28 key indicators of economic activity, economic health and innovation potential. As the website says:

“Our data set ranges from GDP growth to startup activity to share of jobs in high-tech industries.”

Then, WalletHub gave each state an overall score and ranked the states according to their overall score.

Western states dominate the list, taking six of the top seven slots in the survey.

Following is a look at the 25 hottest state economies in the U.S., according to the WalletHub analysis.
