A long time ago I heard a comedian do a skit about girls not dating him because his credit score was too low. It was a funny and very memorable skit but they say that every joke has some truth to it. I would be lying If I told you that I've never judged someone by their credit score. When I found out my last girlfriend had horrible credit it made ask my self questions like... Does she not have any discipline? Does she make bad decisions? Is she horrible with money? Do I want to potentially marry someone who doesn't manage her finances well?... I know it's a bit of a judgement move but coming from a guy who has a an excellent credit score you can see my perspective. If you share some or all of my sentiment then you're gonna be happy that WalletHub just came up with "2020's States with the highest & Lowest Credit Scores" list. Here's how they arrived at the results.

"In order to determine the states with the highest and lowest credit scores, WalletHub compared the average credit scores of residents in each of the 50 states as of September 2020, based on TransUnion data. Read on for the results"
