The category of Infrastructure contains six measures involving both transportation and broadband internet access and deployment. These measure include the percentage of bridges structurally deficient or functionally obsolete, commute time, percentage of workers using public transportation to commute to work, freight rail miles, access to high-speed internet, enplanements, and total shipping tonnage.

Please note that due to lags in collecting and publishing data, some metrics contain data from the current year while others may lag two to three years behind.
