The Doing Business North America project will provide objective measures of business regulations and their enforcement across 115 cities in 92 states, provinces, and federal districts which comprise the sub-national units of Canada, Mexico and the United States.

Modeled upon the methodology of the World Bank’s Doing Business report, the Center’s Doing Business North America report will measure the regulations which apply to domestic small and medium-size companies throughout their life cycle.

The report measures regulations regarding:

  1. Starting a Business
  2. Employing Workers
  3. Getting Electricity
  4. Registering Property
  5. Paying Taxes
  6. Resolving Insolvency

By gathering and analyzing comprehensive quantitative data to compare business regulation environments across North America, Doing Business North America will offer measurable benchmarks for reform that encourage states and provinces to pursue regulatory frameworks that ease the cost of doing business.
