CHEYENNE- A new report from the Business Council of New York State Inc. gives states marks on a series of economic growth indicators spanning a decade. For the statewide index, the letter grade is based on the number of categories for which the state matched or exceeded the rest of the nation. In other words, a state that matched or exceeded the average in every category would be granted an “A plus” overall. A state that matched or exceeded the nationwide average in a single category would be granted a “D.” The index tracked the growth of jobs, average wages, total personal income, per-capita personal income, and population over a 10-year-period, beginning in 1995.
