How the U.S. Corporate Tax Rate Compares to the Rest of the World - Tax Foundation
Most countries tax some form of corporate income. However, the rates differ around the world, ranging from 0% in Bermuda to 55% in United Arab Emirates. The rest of the world, of course, falls somewhere in between. The GDP-weighted worldwide average is just under 30 percent.

The Talent Attraction Scorecard - Emsi
That’s the question we set out to answer with the Talent Attraction Scorecard. Our index uses five metrics to rank how every county has done drawing new residents, growing their skilled and overall workforces, and grabbing a greater share of skilled workers than other regions.

As a complement to this analysis, we separately ranked counties based on how they are attracting young talent by looking at the growth in college enrollment and millennial population per capita.

Lastly, we used cost-of-living-adjusted earnings to help explain why talent is (or is not) moving to these counties.
