Four states in the HPPR listening area are among the top 10 states to start a business, according to a new study.
The personal finance website Wallethub compared several key metrics, including business environment, access to resources and business costs.
In the analysis, Texas was found to be the second best state in America for new businesses, while Oklahoma was number four, Nebraska number five and Colorado number seven.
Kansas was the only HPPR state to not make the top 10, landing much farther down the list at number 34. North Dakota was found to be the best state in America to start a business, and New Jersey was the worst.
Utah, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, and South Dakota rounded out the top ten in the study.
Colorado was also found to have one of the five most educated populations.
