The Greater Louisville Regional Economic Development Organization is a
partnership comprised of 15 county economic development organizations with the
goals of bringing a greater awareness to, and growing our region. The regional data in this section helps paint
the picture of Greater Louisville's current and future workforce, attractive
standard of living, and pro-business environment.Louisville, the nation's 28th largest city, is home to a dynamic,
diversified economy, which outperformed the U.S. in job and income growth over
the last decade. The Greater Louisville region draws workers from a
26-county bi-state area, providing an ample and reliable source of educated and
skilled employees. And the public and private sectors are collaborating
to ensure that workforce quality continues to improve. The business community, local governments, and education providers are
working toward a shared vision that focuses on people - tomorrow's workforce -
as both the means to, and the ultimate beneficiaries of future economic
growth. Innovative inclusion initiatives, transformational education
attainment programs, and proactive talent attraction and retention measures are accelerating
Louisville's progress in this area.

Kentucky has recently enacted wide-spread reforms to tax code policy. Designed to stimulate investment and business growth across the state, the changes are rapidly making Kentucky more competitive. Reforms include the repeal of the corporate license tax and the intangible property tax, as well as a reduction in the corporate income tax rate from 8.25 percent to the current 6%. Personal income taxes have also been reduced to a range of 2-6%.
Indiana ranks 8th in Tax Foundation's 2015 Business Tax Climate Index. The cost of doing business in Indiana is very favorable, due in part to having one of the best workers' compensation rates and unemployment tax rates. Due to legislation passed this year, corporate tax for Indiana is set to drop from 7% to 4.9% by 2021.
