San Antonio has just been named the Best Performing City in this year’s ranking by the Milken Institute.
The 2011 Milken Institute Best-Performing Cities Index ranks U.S. metropolitan
areas by how well they are creating and sustaining jobs and economic growth. The
components include job, wage and salary, and technology growth. In most years,
these give a good indication of the underlying structural performance of
regional economics. The full report can be downloaded here.
This article from the Express-News is a good summary of the reasons for the ranking.
