Maryland ranked first in academic R&D per capita and human capital capacity (which takes into account factors like the number of bachelor's, masters, and doctoral agrees awarded versus a state's population).

The index ranks each state's tech and science capabilities, as well as their success in converting them into companies and high-paying jobs.
