Forbes downgrades Indy for business, careers

April 6, 2007

Indianapolis slipped to 27th from 10th in Forbes' latest annual ranking of the best places for business and careers. The magazine rated 200 cities on growth in jobs and incomes, living costs, crime, work force education and other criteria.

Raleigh, N.C., placed first. Indy Partnership, which markets the Indianapolis area to prospective businesses, issued a news release yesterday saying Indianapolis was 10th—matching last year’s mark—but later retracted that, saying it had received inaccurate information.
