The Beacon Hill Institute releases 16th Annual State Competitiveness Report

Published since 2001, the report is centered on a comprehensive index that has increasingly drawn the attention of policymakers, economists, and public officials who are seeking to identify the strengths and weaknesses in their state’s ability to promote economic growth. The BHI Index is different from most state business climate indices. It goes beyond tax policy and regulatory analyses to establish more comprehensive ranking categories. The BHI Index identifies how well a state performs in its ability to cultivate, for example, a solid base of scientists and engineers, a groundswell of patents, or a positive savings rate while keeping
business costs to a minimum. Read the entire 16th edition of the State Competitiveness Report here.
