thThe Center for American Progress has released its State of the States report. You can read it here.

And thanks, Kimberley, for the link.

  1. That link is to the State-by-State Factsheet. The whole report, which explains how CAP does its figuring, (the key indicators), and has ranking charts to compare States for each of those indicators, is found here [pdf].

    The title is, “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.” Cute. (Clint is not on the cover page.) Who says neoliberals have no sense of humor?

    1. Thanks for this. I thought people might want to check their own state. That’s usually what I turn to in the first place, but this is a great addition.

      1. I really think that an organization that has “Progress” in its name should make its reports easier to navigate and explore.
        I’m sending a copy to VOX. Maybe they can come up with something more interactive.

        1. It isn’t all that great, is it? And doesn’t VOX do great things with data visualization. Almost makes me want to go and Learn Stuff.

          1. They’re genuinely biased on certain issues. Their recent hit on Sanders and Single Payer is a perfect example. Kind of like CAP.

            But they do excel at the data visualization. I thought they did something with a CAP report on poverty a while back, but can’t find it now.
