Despite red tape, high taxes and a burdensome cost of living, California is still deemed to be a good place to do business, and the San Jose region is the nation's best-performing major metro area, according to separate reports released Wednesday.

In one report, prepared by Beacon Economics for nonprofit group Next 10, a comprehensive look at California's business climate determined that the Golden State is considerably more hospitable to business than suggested by conventional wisdom that sometimes elevates less costly states such as Texas.

The business climate in California is improving. A new report shows the state ranks high when it comes to new business development and small business growth.

The report looked at three major indicators of business in California.

A new study finds that California isn’t nearly as hostile to business as its reputation would suggest.

In fact, the state ranks near the top in several key economic measures, such as net job creation and the rate of startups. This is a big deal for two reasons: New businesses create far more jobs than old ones, and California’s high ranking comes despite its onerous costs for taxes, land, energy and other key inputs.

California is outpacing the nation in employment growth, and many of the jobs are coming from new businesses.

That’s one of the takeaways from the newly released California New Business Creation report, commissioned by the nonprofit organization Next 10 and prepared by Beacon Economics. The study dispels the notion that the Golden State’s unfriendly business climate has sidelined its economy.

A new analysis shows California ranks high in the rate of job creation compared to other states.

The report, "California New Business Creation," was written by Beacon Economics for the nonprofit, nonpartisan group Next 10, which is based in San Francisco.

Next 10 founder Noel Perry says the analysis uses 2013 U.S. Census data to show California's "business climate" compares well to other states.
