The State Asset Development Report Card is a benchmarking tool that considers 68 socioeconomic and policy measures–including wealth data never before available at the state level–to compare states on how assets are accumulated, distributed, and protected among their citizens, particularly among those often left out of the economic mainstream. The comprehensive report groups the measures under two main indices-Asset Outcomes and Asset Policies-in which each state is graded. Taken together, the measures assess each state’s performance as well as its polices in support of asset building.
