The most expensive state for the country’s economy?

That would be Florida, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Its population grew by more than 20 percent in just three years, the fastest growth in the country.

The state’s population of 1.65 million was nearly double that of Texas and California, according the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

The Census Bureau projects Florida will have a net job loss of more than 12,000 in 2022.

The costliest state for jobs in 2022: Texas, at $3,932 per job, followed by California, at about $3.18 per job.

The cheapest: Florida, at just $3 per job per person.
