2011 Top States For Doing Business Survey Results

Area Development for a second consecutive year has conducted a survey of highly respected location consultants who work with a nationwide client base. Consultants were asked to name their top-5 state choices in 12 site selection categories.

Texas was named the #1 site location choice among the surveyed consultants. The Lone Star State also received the first place ranking for its overall cost of doing business, business friendliness, corporate tax environment, and incentive programs, as well as recognition as being the leader in the economic recovery.

From June 2010 to June 2011, Texas added more net new jobs — 222,000 — than any other state and between May 2006 and May 2011, Texas produced more than 538,000 new jobs — more than all the other states combined … read the complete survey results at Area Development Online.
