Maryland ranked as one of the top 10 states
Maryland ranks in the top 10 of the best states rankings—Maryland Chamber of Commerce is proud to be making one of the best states even better.
In the inaugural "U.S. News and World Report" Best States Rankings, which take into account over 60 measurements, Maryland ranked 8th overall, with top fives in education and opportunity.
The rankings took into account: health care, education, crime and corrections, infrastructure, opportunity, economy and government.
Some state measurements were weighted more than others based on a survey of what matters most to people. Weighted most heavily were health care and education, followed by opportunity, crime & corrections and infrastructure. State economies and measures of government administration round out the weighting spectrum.
