					              Iowa

                   Iowa ranks among the top ten states for 20 indicators, and ranks among the lowest
                   ten states for no indicators.
                   Residents of Iowa, compared to those of other states, have had relatively more
                   success in gaining job-based and related income assets, accumulating financial
                   assets, and building human capital, with slightly worse outcomes for the latter.
