The goal of CRN's annual Best States analysis is to provide readers with a comprehensive view of the economic, workforce and channel climate in each state. The conclusions can be used by entrepreneurs who are considering starting a solution provider business or by solution provider owners and executives who might be looking for expansion opportunities.

The criteria covered multiple broad categories including labor and operating costs, the education and experience level of a state's workforce, taxes and regulatory burden, state infrastructure, and personal cost of living/quality of life. New criteria considered in this year's analysis included state GDP growth rates, fiscal stability and each state’s internet broadband coverage.
