    Texarcana has a federal prison..........is there a correlation?

    I'm betting that somehow these areas only experienced growth due to some type of federal spending..

    Consider that those are generally smaller cities- adding a couple or few hundred jobs in them will have a big impact while if you added a few hundred jobs in LA or New York it won't change the unemployment by much.

    Consider this alternative chart from March. http://www.theatlanticcities.com/job...-markets/1504/



    Austin and San Jose led the United States in job growth last year, according to an analysis of the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics by Aaron Renn, who blogs as The Urbanophile. Houston, Charlotte, and Nashville round out the top five. And both hard-hit Detroit and Pittsburgh make the top 10, along with Salt Lake City, Dallas, and Raleigh.

    The analysis covers the 51 U.S. metros with populations of one million people or more and covers the year 2010-2011, the latest period for which full data is available.

    Cities and metro areas are increasingly recognized as engines of the economy and of job creation. That is certainly the case with these job creation numbers. As Renn points out: "On the whole it was a much better year for metros than we've seen in the recent past. The national economy added jobs and all but two large metros did as well." Over the same time period, the national unemployment rate dropped from 9.1 percent to 8.3 percent and 329 of the 372 metropolitan areas had lower unemployment rates in December than one year earlier.

    Even where it is considered " good" , unemployment rate is bad.

    Indiana has been looking mighty good lately.

    Indiana is better than most , if you stay out of the major cities, pretty good.

    There are several large office buildings going up near my house, so someone is expanding. Or maybe it's the low interest rates.

    Northern Virginia is cutting back in expectation of some fiscal cliff problems. Large warehouse for the marines have been shut down. Which effects the local eateries, shops and everybody else.

    One of the best places to live. Low cost of living, state has a huge budget surplus. We're putting the rest of the 50 states to shame. My man Mitch for president!

    I am from Indiana and there are some great advantages here from a liberty perspective. However, there is also the negative sides, such as recent IN Supreme Court rulings that removed our right as private citizens to defend against illegal search. In essence, they granted police the ability to basically ignore a warrant and your only recourse is via the courts.

    Nonetheless, we were rated #3 in some freedom index a while back. Also, Indianapolis was rated one of the best places to live and also one of the best for cost of living.
