The rankings come from WalletHub, which analyzed the rate at which people quit their jobs in the last month and over the last 12 months to rank-order resignation rates from highest to lowest. The rankings were updated May 18. 

The annual resignation rate ranges from Alaska's high of 4.15 percent to New York's low of 1.95 percent, while the monthly resignation rate ranges from Florida's high of 4.3 percent to New York's low of 1.7 percent.
