54% of Top Metro Areas Outpaced National Employment Growth in 2015


It’s no secret that our economy has been adding jobs for some time nowso we compiled some data to show you just how well some cities did in 2015.

According to a recent study by CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl., 27 of the top 50 metropolitan areas in the U.S. (54 percent) outperformed the national average in 2015. This study compared employment growth of America’s top markets to national results to reveal which cities are exceeding expectations – and which are lagging behind.

For example, with a national employment growth average of 2 percent from 2014 to 2015, Dallas should only have been expected to create 67,959 jobs. Instead, the market created 112,829 jobs in that time frame — nearly 45,000 jobs ahead of estimates.
