The Peach State ranked eighth on the index. Itís robust 3.8 percent job growth over the last 12 months ending in February make it the third-fastest hiring state, behind only Utah and North Dakota, which have much smaller populations.
Interestingly, Georgiaís unemployment rate appears comparatively gloomy, but then itís one of four states in the top 10 of the index that also have unemployment rates worse than the national average. Economists say thatís because people are moving to those states to find work, and the hiring rate shows they are succeeding.
In terms of population growth, Georgiaís 1.03 percent expansion placed it 14th. Personal income grew 5.2 percent, making it the 10th fastest and the best large, non-energy producing state.
