a PSC In The News reference, 2013

"Report: Michigan's 'well-being' dropped over decade while other states improved" - Mlive.com. 06/25/2013.

According to the Social Research Council's "Measure of America" report, Michigan was the only state in the U.S. in which residents declined in well-being from 2000 to 2010. Well-being is measured on the Human Development Index. Reynolds Farley says education is key to residents who want to participate in the "emerging and growing high-tech end of the automobile industry."
