Contradicting an entrenched narrative that California is a bad place to start or expand a business, a new report sets out to make a case that the Golden State is a national leader in job creation.

The California New Business Creation study uses 2013 U.S. Census Bureau data to show that the state ranks fourth in the nation for job creation and fifth for the creation of new businesses. It comes from Next10, a San Francisco-based pro-renewable energy group, and Beacon Economics, a Los Angeles economic consulting firm.
