Milken Institute Report - Which states are leading in tech and science, and why?
States with the best tech and science assets tend to have the strongest economies. Where is the tech sector most prevalent? Which states have the skilled workers to sustain these innovative companies now and in the future?
Massachusetts is first – again – in the Milken Institute’s State Technology and Science Index 2012. The index tracks and evaluates every state’s tech and science capabilities – and their success at converting those assets into companies and high-paying jobs.
One of the most comprehensive examinations of state technology and science assets ever compiled, the index looks at 79 unique indicators that are categorized into five major components: research and development inputs, risk capital and entrepreneurial infrastructure, human capital investment, technology and science workforce, and technology concentration and dynamism.
