2020 State Science & Technology Index Released

Investments in science and technology are critical for job and wealth creation as well as broader economic growth across all regions of the United States. The biennial State Technology and Science Index (STSI) developed by the Miliken Institute provides a benchmark for evaluating the knowledge economies of all 50 US states. The index compares each state’s capacity for achieving prosperity through scientific discovery and technological innovation.

The index uses 105 metrics in five areas (research and development inputs, risk capital and entrepreneurial infrastructure, human capital investment, technology and science workforce, and technology concentration and dynamism) to evaluate states.

Massachusetts, Colorado, California, Maryland, Washington and Utah top the list.
