Texas Tops Study of U.S. Cities Recovered from Great Recession


Texas leads the nation with the most economically-recovered cities since the Great Recession, says a new study by WalletHub.

They measured the progress of the nation’s local economies since the financial crisis, comparing 505 U.S. cities of varying sizes over 18 key economic indicators, ranging from “inflow of college-educated workers,” “ratio of part-time to full-time jobs,” “median household income,” “share of households receiving public assistance,” “non-farm payrolls change,” plus foreclosure, poverty, and homeownership rates.
