Forbes ranks Austin No. 1 best big city for jobs

Forbes has ranked the Austin metropolitan statistical area No. 1 on its list of the best big cities for jobs.

Employment grew 2.2 percent year-over-year as Austin retained the top spot from last year’s list. When looking at all-sized cities, Forbes ranks the Austin area No. 5 overall. Forbes based its rankings on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics  from November 2000 to January 2012, including factors such as recent growth trends, mid-term growth, long-term growth and the region’s momentum. Austin “has logged strong growth in manufacturing, technology-related employment and business services,” Forbes wrote. Other Texas cities ranked highly, as well. Houston took the second spot on the list, rising from the No. 3 spot last year. The Fort Worth metropolitan area ranked No. 4 on the big cities list, up from No. 15 last year, and the Dallas metropolitan division ranked No. 6 on the big cities list — jumping from No. 39 last year.
