Note that transfers to Mississippi by the Federal government are around 250% of the State’s GDP, and they are consistently in deficit all the time. In absolute terms, New York is the State that transfers the most to other members of the Union. In relative terms (with respect to the State’s own GDP), Delaware is the most generous State in the Union.
