This article lists the Human Development Index by U.S. state, according to the UN. Data is also included for the U.S. territories. It is not to be confused with the American Human Development Index.

And it definitely reflects the region as many of the bordering or otherwise nearby states (i.e. NJ) were in the top 10.

Well said. What makes the United States even more impressive, is that we've managed to maintain such a high quality of life despite having a huge population and taking on the burden of many of the world's problems. It's much easier to maintain a high quality of life when you're a smaller low population country. We really have it good here.
