Charlotte NC, The Queen City, Receives Another Jewel in Her 'Crown'
Atlanta, Houston, New Orleans, San Antonio, Dallas, Phoenix, and Austin were among metropolitan cities showing significant growth in relation to newcomers to their metropolitan areas. Two North Carolina cities, Raleigh & Charlotte ranked #1 and #3 consecutively!
According to Forbes Magazine, ten U.S. metropolitan cities are showing vibrant statistical increases in population growth! The manner in which Forbes conducted it's analysis was using the 2008 population estimates in areas with a population over 1 million, according to the US Census Bureau. When compared to the previous year's date, the metropolitan statistical areas that showed the most growth were deemed the most vibrant metro areas who are attracting relocation to those areas.
With unemployment on the rise, credit tighter than it has been in many, many years and consumer confidence low, Charlotte continues to be immune to the recessionary woes, with a 10.5% unemployment rate. Because Charlotte is known for being a financial powerhouse in the US, many forget the variety of industrial and manufacturing jobs that are headquartered here in Charlotte. Our manufacturing hub employs 80,000 workers in 2,093 companies that produce everything from A-Z, offering more job security than other trade, industrial or manufacturing jobs in other major cities.
We are very fortunate to live in such a 'sound' and healthy city!
