Orlando once trended as a hotspot for millennials but a new study ranked Florida as one of the worst places for them to live.

The study used four categories to create the list: millennial unemployment rate, homeownership, average student loan debt, and percentage of millennials living in poverty, according to career website Zippia.

In Florida, millennials’ unemployment rates and homeownership are at 7% with poverty rates at 22%.

Millennial homeownership in the state also ranks as the third-worst in the country, according to Zippia.

Florida is not the only Southern state to earn such a dubious distinction.

Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina also round out the top five.

Mississippi took home the number one spot with unemployment and homeownership numbers at 10% in addition to a 29% poverty rate for millennials.
