Ohio finished third overall in Site Selection’s annual ranking of state business climates. Georgia and North Carolina were numbers one and two.
Fifty percent of the ranking is based on a survey of site selectors – corporate facility investors and site consultants — who indicate simply which states they deem to be the most business friendly. That’s the subjective part. The other 50 percent — the objective side — is a combination of factors primarily based on announced project data that resides in the Conway Projects Database which credits areas with corporate facility projects of at least $1 million in capital investment, 20 or more new jobs or new construction of at least 20,000 sq. ft. 11/3/2016
