As reported by the Pittsburgh Business Times, Pittsburgh is the eighth-most cost-friendly city for business. The study by KPMG LLP, the New York-based audit, tax and advisory firm, ranked 31 U.S. metro areas in its 2014 Competitive Alternatives study.
Pittsburgh had a cost index of 96.4. This was due to relatively low salary and wages costs and very low property tax costs.
KPMG measured 26 key cost components for each market.
