The Measure of America: American Human Development Report 2008-2009

eds. Sarah Burd-Sharps, Kristen Lewis and Eduardo Borges Martins

The Measure of America is the first-ever measure of the status of human development in the United States or any developed nation and provides a snapshot of Americans’ well-being by state, congressional district, gender, race and ethnicity.

Using U.S. government statistics on longevity, educational attainment and enrollment, and earnings, the report reveals where America is today and sets a benchmark against which we will be able to assess where we are tomorrow.
