Experienced journalists ranked each state government on its corruption risk using 330 specific measures. The Investigation ranked every state from one to 50. Each state received a report card with letter grades in 14 categories of state government, including campaign finance, lobbying regulations, access to information, and management of state pension funds. The project also included overview stories on each of the 50 states.
