Report: Tar Heel State Lags in Personal Freedom

North Carolinians enjoy less personal freedom in 2011 than they did five years ago, but the Tar Heel State has improved its standing in economic liberty, according to a nationwide analysis by the libertarian Mercatus Center at George Mason University.  The new report, similar to one released in 2009, tracks state-level freedom across three metrics: fiscal, regulatory, and personal. North Carolina’s overall freedom ranking in 2011 is 18th, compared to 14th in 2006, out of 50 states.
