Yes, times are much better today. And some states are doing particularly well.

WalletHub recently compared data across the 50 states and ranked the states according to 28 key indicators of economic activity, economic health and innovation potential. As the website says:

“Our data set ranges from GDP growth to startup activity to share of jobs in high-tech industries.”
