In North Carolina and across the United States, women have made significant progress. Despite this, many women remain in poverty with limited access to a quality education, affordable health care services, and other supports that would give them economic security.

These indicators are combined to create an index that ranks North Carolina against all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
