Obviously infrastructure is a crucially important subject, whether it’s invested in or neglected. Studies show every $1 billion of infrastructure investment creates 20k+ jobs and that failure to invest properly in infrastructure in the next decade will cost each American household roughly $3,400. Deficiencies in our surface transportation system currently cost U.S. households and businesses nearly $146 billion annually.
High Tide Technologies has created an infographic that is an extensive analysis of infrastructure data. They compared the most recent rankings of state-by-state infrastructure quality and compared them to what those states spend themselves, and also what the federal government gives each state. You can see our results in the main table of this graphic.
