Grading the States 2008 Report


As a vital component of Pew's efforts to foster effective solutions to some of America's most pressing challenges, the Government Performance Project's Grading the States 2008 report was an assessment of the quality of management in the 50 states. The report's findings, developed in partnership with Governing Magazine, were generated from extensive interviews and surveys of state-level managers and opinion leaders.
