50-State Scorecard

As proud Texans, our policymakers and taxpayers want to know how the Lone Star State stacks up across the country.

How’s the economy? What about taxes? Debt? Personal wages? These facts are more than mere bragging rights — they can have critical implications for our future.

As the chief fiscal officer for Texas, the Comptroller of Public Accounts forecasts revenue for the state, making it vitally important that we keep a finger on the pulse of our economy.

Third-party sources compiled the source data for these rankings; our office has not independently verified the data. The Comptroller does not control or guarantee the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of any source data —provided as of the date indicated — or related website. When you access any third-party website, you will be leaving the Comptroller’s website.
