BILLINGS, Mont. -

When it comes to depending on the federal government, it turns out Montana is pretty high on the list.

In a recent report on federally dependent states from the finance website WalletHub, Montana ranks 6th most dependent. Wyoming comes in at 16.

WalletHub analysts compared the states on three metrics: return on taxes paid to the federal government, federal funding as a percentage of state revenue and share of federal jobs.

Just in case you're curious, Mississippi was the most dependent and Delaware was the least.
