San Diego and California aren’t singing the same song when it comes to business relocations.
From 1989 to 2011, San Diego enjoyed a net increase in businesses and jobs due to company moves.
During that same period, the state saw net drops on both fronts.
San Diego Regional Data Library helped us lay out the trend by analyzing a database tracking hundreds of thousands of business moves in and out of California.
These figures include company moves within the state, which are more frequent than the out-of-state moves that tend to make headlines.
