A new Forbes magazine report ranks Davenport, Iowa 25th in the nation for its low cost of doing business. The report - "Best Places For Business and Careers - also ranks Davenport 90th overall among 200 large metro areas.
Forbes bases those rankings on economic research firm Economy.com, owned by Moody's. Its business cost index factors in labor, tax, energy and office space costs. For living costs, Economy.com weighs housing, transportation, food and other household expenditures. It also supplied five-year historical figures on job and income growth, as well as migration trends.
Other data used in the rankings came courtesy of Portland, Ore., researcher Bertrand Sperling. He looked at the education of each metro's work force as well as the presence of four-year colleges in each area. Sperling also examined such quality-of-life issues as crime rates and cultural and recreational opportunities.
WAY TO GO, DAVENPORT!!!
