The State Economic Monitor tracks and analyzes economic and fiscal trends at the state level. Its interactive graphics highlight differences across all 50 states and the District of Columbia in employment, earnings, housing, and state gross domestic product (GDP). The interactive tool lets users produce, save, and share custom charts from selected states and years. Users can also download their custom data.
