Calling all transplants and locals alike, you might be shocked to learn (kidding) that Seattle is the third fastest-growing large city in America.
I mean, I could have told you that, but Wallethub beat me to it apparently! To determine the fastest-growing cities WalletHub compared 515 U.S. cities across 17 key metrics. The data set ranges from population growth to college-educated population growth to unemployment rate decrease.
Here's how Seattle stacked up:
Economic Growth in Seattle (1=Fastest-Growing; 258=Avg.)
- 24th – Population Growth
- 26th – Median Household Income Growth
- 48th – Job Growth
- 123rd – Regional GDP Growth
- 221st – Growth in Number of Businesses
- 34th – Working-Age Population Growth
- 59th – Median House Price Growth
Here are the top five largest cities with the most growth:
- Austin, TX
- Miami, FL
- Seattle, WA
- Henderson, NV
- Denver, CO
