Top 10 States Most Affected by Potential Trade Issues with Mexico

Given the current uncertainty in the trade sector, WalletHub decided to explore the impact of the economic fallout with Mexico on individual states. The group analyzed data that ranges from “exports to Mexico as a share of state GDP” to “share of jobs supported by trade with Mexico.”

The WalletHub analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across five key metrics. The data set ranges from “exports to Mexico as a share of state GDP” to “share of jobs supported by trade with Mexico.”

Some highlights include:

  • New Mexico is the most dependent state on exports to Mexico, supplying 45% of the state’s total exports to the country, whereas Hawaii is the least dependent, supplying 0.10%.

  • Arizona is the most dependent state on imports from Mexico, receiving 39% of total U.S. imports from the country, whereas the District of Columbia is the least dependent, receiving 0.77%.

  • Texas supplies the highest exports to Mexico as a share of state GDP, 6%, whereas the District of Columbia and Hawaii supply the lowest amount, almost zero.

  • Michigan receives the highest imports from Mexico as a share of state GDP, 9%, whereas the District of Columbia receives the lowest amount at 0.01%.

  • The District of Columbia has the highest share of jobs supported by trade with Mexico, 7%, whereas Oklahoma has the lowest at 3%.
