The Cities with the Best Economies in the United States

America’s prosperity can be traced to its big cities. Finding where the big cities’ economies stand, Business Insider combined five areas of general economic health and labor-market for the 40 metro areas with the largest 2017 populations. The areas measured were the unemployment rate, job growth rate, average weekly wage, GDP growth rate, and GDP per capita. But placing these on a common scale and adding them together, they were able to get an overall picture of the state of each metro area’s economy.
