Measuring Arizona's Economy

Perceptions of an area's economy are often at odds with the facts. A couple of ASU profs gave a pop quiz to business leaders at teh Arizona Economics Club meeting last Wednesday. Some of the facts were quite interesting. My favorites:

5. What is our rank among states in the number of high-tech jobs as a percentage of all jobs? (15)

6. What is our rank among states in export sales per worker? (10)

Note that 1 is high and 50 is low in state rankings.
