Measures of local business climate: alternative approaches

Abstract

The volatility of the Grant Thornton rankings and the relationship between states' rankings and a newly available measure of activity, gross state product, is analyzed. Cluster analysis is used to determine the underlying similarity of states and to determine whether the facts used by Grant Thornton can provide insight into the best and worst performing states. Regression analysis is used on a series of possible growth criteria to demonstrate a methodology for generating subregional indices. -from Authors
