A map of the American Human Development Index rating within the United States, 2013-2014 report.

This article presents a sortable table of U.S. states sorted by their American Human Development Index, according to Measure of America. The data were taken from the American Human Development Report.

The territories of the United States are listed separately (they were not included in Measure of America's report); the territories data is from a different source (based on United Nations Development Programme), which uses a different numbering system.[1]
