Track How the SLED Market Performed in the Third Quarter of 2023

Growth in Q3 also aligned with increased spending at the start of a new fiscal year for 46 of 50 state governments. The three levels of state, local and education (SLED) government all reaffirmed a continued return to post-pandemic normalcy as they each attained a similar growth rate.
