Overall and Issue Area Ranks

Reports & Graphics

Definition

State ranks for overall and issue area performance in the 2013 Scorecard.

Description

To calculate a state’s rank for its performance in each issue area, the state’s ranks for each outcome in an issue area are averaged (all measures are weighted equally). The lower the average, the better the state's overall performance for that issue area.

The overall outcome rank is calculated by averaging the ranks across the issue areas to generate an overall score (all issue areas are weighted equally). The lower the overall score, the better the state’s overall performance in the Scorecard. The overall score for the states is then ranked from 1 to 51.
