Oklahoma City Leads Large Cities in Job Creation

Gallup News Service (03/29/12) Lymari Morales; Joe Daly

Oklahoma City, Pittsburgh, and Richmond, VA, topped Gallup’s Job Creation Index among the 50 biggest U.S. metro areas in 2011. More than 33% of employees in each of the top-performing metro areas said their company was hiring or expanding its work force. Oklahoma City topped the list because of the low percentage of employees (12%) who said their company was letting people go or downsizing its work force. The Nashville, TN, and Orlando, FL, areas rounded out the top five metro areas with the highest job creation scores. The largest metro areas in the country—New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago—ranked nearer the bottom of the list than the top. However, every one of the top 50 metro areas has a positive score.
