Killeen Ranked #1 Best City for Jobs
NewGeography.com has promoted the Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood MSA to #1 in its 2011 rankings for best city for jobs. Killeenr ranked #1 among two categories - "All Cities" and "Small Cities".
"Once again the best places for jobs tended to be smaller communities where incremental improvements can have a relatively large impact. Eighteen of the top 20 cities on our list were either small (under 150,000 nonfarm jobs) or mid-sized areas (less than 450,000 jobs).
But no place displayed more vibrancy than Texas. The Lone Star State dominated the three size categories, with the No. 1 mid-sized city, El Paso (No. 3 overall, up 22 places from last year) and No.1 large metropolitan area Austin (No. 6 overall), joining Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood (the No. 1 small city) atop their respective lists."
