The 2016 Camelot Index

The Camelot Index was developed by Reports founding editor Hal Hovey, a longtime observer and analyst of state budgets and economies. It ranks states on six “quality of life” measures: economy, health, crime, education, society, and state government. This year’s index features revisions to some measures, but no big changes in overall results.
