BALTIMORE, MD—With people who have college degrees earning around $600 to $1,200 more per week than people with just a high school diploma, the personal-finance website WalletHub this week released its report on 2024’s Most & Least Educated States in America.

Maryland came in at No. 3, while Massachusetts topped the list.
