Georgia had the most business start-ups in the nation in 2010.

And among the 15 largest metro areas, Atlanta tied for second-most new companies.

The data comes from the Kauffman Foundation’s Index of Entrepreneurial Activity.

In Georgia, for every 100,000 people, 510 started a business each month.

That ties with Nevada for the top spot among states.

Nationwide, 340 out of 100,000 adults created a new business each month.

Georgia also experienced the largest gain in entrepreneurial activity over the past decade.
