Austin tops Forbes’ most recent list of U.S. cities that are expected to experience the best job growth over the next couple of years. According to economic research cited in the article, Austin is projected to have a 4% annual increase in jobs/employment through the year 2015, which ranks higher than any other U.S. city.
We all know that business is doing quite well in the state of Texas compared to the rest of the country, and this Forbes article further confirms that notion: Seven of the top ten metro areas projected to have the best job growth are in Texas. Austin is ranked No. 1, Houston is No. 3, Ft. Worth/Arlington No. 4, and Dallas is listed at No. 8. The annual job growth is projected to be 3.1% or higher in all seven of the Texas metro areas that fall in the top 10. (More info here.)
