The US Centre has been supported by the LSE's Annual Fund to create the State of the States, a unique, free to use, apolitical resource whose purpose is to lend information and insights into US state politics and policy.
In April 2019, the State of the States was recognised with a Guardian University Award for digital innovation. Now including nearly 1,600 news and blog updates and 2,500 data points from across the 50 states and Washington DC, the State of the States was seen by a panel of judges as an important tool for exploring US state politics and policy issues.The project now has pride of place in the Guardian University Awards’ ideas bank, and will serve as best practice inspiration to others.
We want this resource to be useful to all, so we’d love to hear your suggestions, especially if you are a journalist – you can send us a message on Twitter @LSE_US, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The State of the States is run by the LSE’s United States Centre, and was masterminded and put together in the summer of 2018 by the team of USAPP blog editor, Chris Gilson, and LSE Masters’ student, Sarah Scaffidi.
