Connecticut ended 2022 at the No. 17 position among states in overall economic growth despite a lagging fourth quarter, new federal data show.
And in a point of pride, Connecticut regained its longtime lead in per-capita income in 2022 after falling to No. 2 behind Massachusetts in 2021, for the first time in three decades. Our lead in 2022 totaled a razor-thin $27 over our northern neighbor, obviously a rounding error but a win nonetheless.
