Delaware Employment Data

By land size, Delaware is the second smallest state in the nation. But it makes up for it in might. Close to a million companies – including more than half of the corporations that comprise the Fortune 500 – are incorporated in Delaware, partly because of it pro-business population, but also because of its advanced and flexible corporation statutes, its well respected corporations court (The Court of Chancery), and its state legislature, which remains focused on keeping business laws fresh, according to the Delaware Department of State.
