A new analysis shows California ranks high in the rate of job creation compared to other states.
Next 10 founder Noel Perry says the analysis uses 2013 U.S. Census data to show California's "business climate" compares well to other states.
"California tied for fifth in establishment entry rates of new businesses, we tied for fourth job creation rates from new firm growth and we ranked fourth in total net job creation," says Perry.
Perry says the report shows California is near the top of many key state-by-state rankings for new-business expansion and small-business growth.
"California is in the top-10 of all states in the rate of small business creation and it's companies with one-to-four employees," says Perry.
Perry says California is also ranked fourth in total net job creation.
