South Carolina Ranked 4th in Top States For Doing Business Survey


For the second year in a row, Area Development has conducted a survey of a select group of highly respected location consultants who work with a nationwide client base. They asked the consultants to name their top-5 state choices in 12 site selection categories.

States were ranked in each of the 12 site selection categories based on the number of times they were named as a “top-5” choice by the responding consultants. Next, a top-5 state’s ranking in each of the 12 categories was assigned a weight in accordance with its position in these individual categories. Based on these total weighted scores, Texas is far and away the consultants’ #1 choice for doing business, followed by Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina (with weighted scores only a point apart), and finally Indiana in the #5 spot. Taking the #6–#10 rankings based on weighted scores are Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, and — surprisingly — California, in that order.
