30 Jun 2020
For the second consecutive year, Connecticut has been ranked as the nation’s fourth most innovative economy. California, Massachusetts and Washington ranked one-two-three in Bloomberg’s annual State Innovation Index, for the third straight year. Oregon moved up to number five, two spots higher than a year ago.
The ranking is based on six equally weighted metrics: research and development intensity, productivity, clusters of companies in technology, STEM jobs, residents with degrees in science and engineering disciplines and patent activity.
