AARP State Ranking on Long-Term Services and Supports for Older Adults, People with Physical Disabilities, and Family Caregivers


Story Behind the Curve

In this third (2017) Scorecard, Washington edges out Minnesota for the top slot, followed by Vermont, Oregon, and Alaska.

The three Scorecards all have somewhat different methodologies and indicator sets, due primarily to changes in data availability. Ranks are not directly comparable between years, but the results across all three editions of the Scorecard indicate that Washington and Minnesota are consistently leading the pack.
