In the first U.S. News & World Report ranking of the 50 U.S. states, released Tuesday morning, New Jersey came in at No. 14 overall. Even better, it ranked higher than New York (No. 17), Delaware (20) and Pennsylvania (30).

The states were judged on seven categories: Health care, education, crime and corrections, infrastructure, opportunity, economy and government.
