Patent Issuance By State

Image

 

Always being interested in patent data, I put together this graph showing the distribution of issued patents since 1977.  The patent data is broken down by state to show which states are responsible for the most patenting.  It came as no surprise to me that California came out on top as the number 1 state for issued patents considering it is a hub of both software and biotechnology.  What did surprise me was how prolific Texas was.  Perhaps that should not have been so unexpected as in recent years Texas has become a major technology and start up hub.  Enjoy the data!
