How North Carolina Compares:
How North Carolina Compares ranks North Carolina relative to other states on areas including population, health, education, taxes, and expenditures. This publication was designed as a quick reference that allows state comparisons across indicators and may be useful when evaluating outcomes of state government programs. Data were extracted from the U.S. Census Bureau and other national databanks to assure uniformity of measurement across states. We encourage feedback from members of the General Assembly on ways to improve this publication's usefulness.
