« Spokane water woes . . . or not | Main | Shuttered: Spokane dodging the Starbucks' axe? »



Where exactly did you find your table?

I took a looks at the "city profiles" and it shows Spokane lower than the national average and lower than our neighboring cities for R&D at 95.7, with Portland above 99 and with Boise at 97.5

Am I reading something wrong?


Those figures you're looking at refer to 'costs' of performing R&D. We didn't reference that portion of the study. Instead we went to the Report appendices (Volume II) to assemble the table you see above. At that point it's a region/state view. The numbers you reference show that Spokane is ranked #1 as far as the lowest cost of doing business in the US Pacific Region (99.8), just below the US avg. Not bad. Boise was at 100.5; Portland at 102.2.
