The Doing Business North America (DBNA) project annually provides objective measures of the scale and scope of business regulations in 130 cities across 92 states, provinces, and federal districts of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. It uses 111 data indicators spread over six categories to score and rank cities in regard to how easy it is to set up, operate, and shut down a business.
Focusing on city-level regulations, this study provides measurable benchmarks; objective measurements of regulatory conditions publicly-available to researchers and policymakers allowing them to track the improvement or decline in local regulatory conditions, providing context for potential policy reform.
