INDEX IDENTIFIES TEXAS COUNTIES ATTRACTIVE TO INVESTORS
PITTSBURGH (FourthEconomy.com) – The 2012 Fourth Economy Index Listing for small and mid-sized counties has been released. Three Texas counties are identified as having a strong capacity to attract and retain sustainable investment.
Among mid-sized counties nationwide, Brazos County ranked seventh with a Fourth Economy Community (FEC) index score of 1.9 and an "innovation capacity" of A+. Lubbock County ranked ninth with a 1.8 index score and B- in innovation capacity.
Randall County was the only Texas county to land in the top ten among small-sized counties. It ranked tenth with a 1.29 index score and an A in innovation capacity.
Results for large-sized and micro-sized counties will be released later this year, according to FourthEconomy.com.
According to Fourth Economy's website, "key data are collected to include wage and employment growth, education levels, drive times, home values, minority business ownership, agricultural capacity and population density. The measures are weighted based on the level of influence they have on both internal and external investment decisions.
"The analysis also considers the capacity for a community to support innovation. The FEC Index expresses an innovation capacity score as a letter grade, determined by the online source Stats-America. This grade considers factors such as human capital, state policy context and productivity."
