This infographic offers an overview of top cities for small businesses, based on data from the Credibly Business Index. Each list entry contains the same organization, and data visualization choices are appropriate for the data at hand. Consistent icons and color choices build a comparative approach for readers. While this piece's subject is city benefits for small businesses, much of the explanatory text focuses on the city's primary industry or big businesses, which might be contradictory for a reader. Also, some of the data might not align with how it's represented—the index is noted to be a score, yet it's visualized as a percentage. Overall, this infographic has some strong qualities, but it needs a bit more focus to achieve its highest impact. We'd give this a C.
