Best and Worst States for Business 2010 by Chief Executive

In Chief Executive’s annual survey of best and worst states for business, conducted January 2010, 651 CEOs across the U.S. graded the states. The business leaders were asked to draw upon their direct experience to rate each state in three general categories: taxation and regulation, quality of workforce and living environment. Within each category respondents graded states in five subcategories, as well as ranking each in terms of its importance to the respondent and how individual states measure up.
