The Economist recently developed for its website an interactive map of the United States. The map depicts human development, health, crime, and other measurements by state based on data compiled by the American Human Development Project.
A more well-known set of indicators is the Human Development Index, which measures the well-being of each country. However, the American Human Development Project applies that concept to each state in the Union. The data used to generate the below map come from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey and from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
