The 2013 Economic Scorecard is an objective, data driven, document that examines 24 indices and ranks nine regions on their scores in five different categories ranging from economic activity to quality of place while still providing an overall ranking of the regions and comparing them to the national average. The nine examined regions represent parts of five states but we have put a special emphasis on the four regions of the Northern Sacramento Valley, including the Tri County Region, Redding MSA, Yuba City MSA, and Sacramento MSA. The other examined regions are Medford MSA, Reno MSA, Boise MSA, Portland MSA, and Fresno MSA.
