  (a) the percentage of real property within each county  of  the  state

  (ii) the growth of new small businesses in the county, if any;
  (iii) the growth of new jobs in the county, if any;
  (iv) the population growth of the county, if any;
  (v) the number of tax exempt not-for-profit organizations in the coun-

that are subject to real property taxation; and
  (d) strategies that will support an  equitable  distribution  of  real
property taxation within the county.
