Chief Executive just did an article on the CEO's Pick for Best / Worst States for Business.
In 2010, Texas again ranks #1 state for business. California on the other hand came in 51 (DC was included on the list).
Who would have thought. It seems as though Texas has been ranked #1 for the past 5 years. At the same time CA and NY have not changed in the last 5 years either. NY has ranked #50 and again, CA #51.
Part of the rankings were based upon:
- Best and Worst State Rankings
- Taxation & Regulation
- Workforce Quality
- Living Environment
- % of Growth '04-'08
- Growth in terms of National Average
- Unemployment Rate % Dec. 2008
- Comparison w/ National Unemployment Rate %
