Our geographies index calculates the “friendless” of several American cities towards small businesses. Each city is assigned an Index score after considering several factors, such as the number of businesses in the city, their yearly total revenue, and how many businesses stay open after their first two years in business. All information is taken from the United States Census and the US Small Business Administration.
The Credibly Industries Index provides information on many different types of business, and assigns an Index score to each. This score is calculated by considering factors such as the average cost of opening the business, the number of that business already open in America, and average annual sales. The information used for this calculation is collected from a number of sources including industry specialists, business publications, and shareholder information when applicable.
