This report is part of a series that identifies changes in state general obligation (GO) and issuer ratings and outlooks. We produce the report on a quarterly basis; the last publication was April 2018. We maintain GO or equivalent issuer ratings for 49 states. Stable outlooks apply to 45 states, and four states have negative outlooks. The data included in this report reflect rating changes for each state by year, a list of all state GO or issuer ratings by category, and a list of all state outlooks.
