Consistently placing in the top ten since CNBCs competitive rankings began in 2007, Georgia’s solid growth in job and housing markets propelled the state intothe #1 slot this year for the first time.
Housing, infrastructure, quality of life, innovation, business friendliness, and education were just some of the categories assessed in the Top States competition. This year, job growth in particular was used as a top criteria in the rankings.
Though the state ranked lower than some in education and quality of life, its rankings were especially high in the workforce, economy, infrastructure and transportation categories.
If you’ve got business on your mind- it’s a great time to have Georgia on your mind as well.
