    Economies are ranked on their ease of doing business based on their overall score. A high ease of doing business ranking means the regulatory environment is more conducive to the starting and operation of a local firm. The score is determined by sorting the aggregate distance to frontier scores on 10 topics, each consisting of several indicators, giving equal weight to each topic.
