Smart State Index Delivers First Comprehensive Digitalization Assessment

States ranked in Smart Energy, Water, Transportation, Education, Health and eGovernment journey.

Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Jun 27, 2016 – Angelou Economics and CMG release Smart State Index at Municipal Smart Grid Summit at PGA National.
 
Angelou Economics and CMG joined together to design, create and publish a yearly Smart State Index and a series of reports to help Federal, State and Local Government officials along with executives from private enterprises on each sector to assess, optimize and accelerate the digitalization and transformation of our economy.
 
The Smart State Index focuses on Energy, Water, Transportation, Education, Health and eGovernment initiatives, programs and progress across each State in The U.S.  To build the index, 41 metrics were collected on every state from public and private sources.  State’s performances are ranked using a comprehensive methodology, and states are ranked against each metric, 5 indices and overall.  States within each region and by population are compared.  Massachusetts, Oregon and Connecticut are overall top performers. 
 
The full report is 91 pages.  More information on how to obtain a copy of the Executive Summary can be found at info.angeloueconomics.com/smartstates.
 
"In my 30 years of providing economic development services, I have seen very few tools that make such a profound difference. The Smart State Index, analysis, best practices and reports are exactly what modern state officials need to understand the digital revolution and propel their state into the future," said Angelos Angelou, CEO and Founder of AngelouEconomics.
 
“Our Smart State Index study and reports help make sense of the digitalization revolution taking place today in the U.S. The Energy, Water, Transportation, Education, Health and Government sectors are seeing a huge acceleration nationwide and we have the insights,” said Andres Carvallo, CEO and Founder of CMG.
