Site Selection ranked Louisiana No. 4 in the magazine’s 2015 Top State Business Climate Rankings. According to a Biz Magazine report, this is the sixth consecutive Top 10 ranking for Louisiana in the annual Site Selection report and “reinforces the state’s reputation as a top location for business investment and job creation.” Just six years ago, Louisiana ranked No. 25. Scores are determined by a variety of factors. Half of the score results from a survey of corporate site selectors who are asked to rank the states based on their recent experience of locating facilities in them. The other 50 percent is based on an index that includes total new projects year-to-date, both overall and per capita; state tax burdens on new and established companies; and performance in Site Selection’s annual Top Competitive States ranking.
