Live Better in New Jersey

That’s the news from the American Human Development Project as reported by the Wall Street Journal. NYU Press will be publishing the 2010-2011 version of AHDP’s report, Measure of America, in the fall.

Asian Americans living in New Jersey live better than any other ethnic group in any other state — based on overall health, education and income — a new report shows.

The rankings are part of an American Human Development Index designed to measure the disparities between different racial and ethnic groups across states. The index factors in life expectancy at birth, educational degree attainment among adults 25-years or older, school enrollment for people at least three years old and median annual gross personal earnings.

ABC News also featured the report in a recent segment.
