The good:

1. Michigan ranked first in the nation in this e-government category, which measure the progress of getting government functions online.

2. Michigan ranked fourth in industry investment in research and development, 10th in foreign direct investment in the state, and 11th in managerial, professional and technical jobs.

The bad:

3. The state ranked 40th in entrepreneurial activity, 30th in new stock offerings and 32nd in the use of technology in schools
