The consultants were asked to name their top-5 state choices in 14 site selection categories. North Carolina ranked #5 on the 2012 Overall States for Doing Business and Business Climate, #3 Leading States in Economic Recovery, and #2 Top State for labor Climate!

 

States were ranked in each of the 14 categories based on the number of times they were named as a "top-5" choice by the responding consultants.
