Doing Business North America

The primary objective of the Doing Business North America report is to provide a measure of the ease of doing business for cities in North America. The Ease of Doing Business Score is derived from a summation of the scores awarded in each of the six categories measured by this report. The Ease of Doing Business Score focuses on the regulatory burdens a small- to medium-sized business would face from the birth of the business to the death of the business in cities across North America.
