The 2019 Manufacturing Scorecard from Ball State's Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) analyzes how each state ranks among its peers in several areas of the economy that underlie the success of manufacturing and logistics.

Wisconsin maintained its grade of B+ in its human capital, B in the manufacturing industry and logistics industry categories, C+ in its diversification, C in its benefits costs and C- in productivity and innovation and tax climate. The state’s grades declined from A to B+ in its liability gap and from C+ to C in its global position.
