Site Selection magazine has placed Oklahoma at No. 18 on its Top Business Climate for 2009 list. The ranking of the top 25 states is based, in part, on a survey of corporate real estate executives as well as a plant database that tracks new and expanded business facility activity. North Carolina had the No. 1-ranked business climate, followed by Texas and Virginia. Oklahoma's ranking rose from No. 24 in 2008. In 2007, the state ranked No. 15.
