Obesity costs the U.S. healthcare system $147 billion per year, according to the CDC. The disease touches many areas of healthcare and accounts for a sizable portion of GI surgeons' cases. 

Becker's ASC Review has compiled key rankings on obesity and the job market to form a composite score intended to reflect "hotspots" where both need and opportunity for gastroenterologists is high. Rankings on each metric were averaged, meaning lower scores are better.

Data comes from job market research company Zippia, which analyzed Bureau of Labor Statistics data, and personal finance company WalletHub, which analyzed data from HHS, the Census Bureau, BLS, CDC and other private and federal government sources.

The top seven GI hotspot states:

1. (tie) Kentucky. Becker's hotspot composite score: 25

1. (tie) West Virginia. Becker's hotspot composite score: 25

3. North Carolina. Becker's hotspot composite score: 58

4. Indiana. Becker's hotspot composite score: 64

5. Delaware. Becker's hotspot composite score: 65

6. (tie) Missouri. Becker's hotspot composite score: 81

6. (tie) Iowa. Becker's hotspot composite score: 81
