An attempt to find out how states are being impacted by the government shutdown, one calculation finds Arizona is among the states that will feel it the most.

This ranking took into account the number of federal workers, federal contracting dollars, small business lending, the weight of real estate on a state's economy, Social Security payments, student aid applications, and veterans in each state.
Obviously, this isn't a perfect analysis. For one, Social Security payments haven't been affected up to this point.
Also, the analysis doesn't take into account tourism surrounding national parks. Tourism to the state is a bit different without the Grand Canyon.

However, many of these factors are pretty legitimate things to look at. For example, there are only three states where real estate is a higher percentage of a state's economic output.
So, the shutdown will affect things in Arizona, and according to this analysis, more than most other states.
