Industry summaries

The study includes detailed results for 19 industries. A brief summary of results for each industry can be accessed here.

The basis for comparison used in each industry summary is the after-tax cost of startup and operation for the representative business operation over a 10-year planning horizon. National results are based on the combined results for a group of comparable cities in each country. National and city results are expressed as an index in comparison to the baseline results of the United States (100.0).
