  Benefits

The category of benefits in Measuring Up 2004 is a derivative category: A state has to make improvements in other categories to show public benefits from higher education. Utah performs relatively well compared to other states in terms of the benefits that it accrues from having an educated population, in part because of the contribution of its residents to the civic good, as measured by charitable giving, voting, and volunteerism. Despite the fact that a relatively high percentage of residents have a bachelor's degree, Utah has been one of the few states to see a decline in the economic benefits to the state, suggesting the need for more aggressive economic development.28
