The rate at which people are leaving their places of employment varies across the country, with Alaska leading the nation and New York lagging. 

The rankings come from WalletHub, which analyzed the rate at which people quit their jobs in December 2021 and over the last 12 months to rank-order resignation rates from highest to lowest.

The annual resignation rate ranges from Alaska's high of 3.8 percent to New York's low of 1.83 percent, while the monthly resignation rate ranges from Alaska's high of 5.2 percent to New York's low of 2 percent.
