Official Count By State and Rank

The USPTO Official Count of patents assigns patents to a state based on the residence of the first-named inventor on the patent. If a US patent has inventors from more than one state, only the state of residence of the first-named inventor on the patent is credited with a patent. This worked great when all of the inventors lived in the same area and worked in the same lab. Today's cross-border collaborations among inventors, product developers and businesses is more diverse.
