The Virginia Report 2013 Published
The Virginia Report 2013 is now out and available for download.
This year's report reveals a Virginia still working hard to create greater prosperity and achievement. The Commonwealth saw improved performance on several key indicators and a number of new data assessment instruments detailed in the Report will allow the state to zero in further on some important drivers of success.
This year’s cover pays homage to one of the Commonwealth’s most important sources of wealth: agriculture, and specifically, our apple orchards. Virginia is the nation’s 6th largest producer of apples and apple products -- a longstanding element in the state’s growing agricultural portfolio.
