Methodology

Grades for the indicators in each category are calculated off a quintile system based upon the ranks out of 50 states plus Washington D.C. States ranked in the top 10 receive A rankings. States ranked within 11 to 20 will receive B rankings. C rankings will be assigned to states ranked 21 to 31. 32 to 41 will receive a D ranking while states in the bottom quintile receive F rankings. Category grades are then calculated as an average of all of the grades within each category where each indicator receives equal weighting.
