I thought it would be interesting to put them in groups like this. Chicago definitely dominates the Midwest region.

Why there were excluded from the analysis- Do you believe that Atlanta, Houston, and Miami are heads above either Dallas or Philly - it was unscientiifc, but so was the score that this analysis was providing by not including them

I'm glad to see an American city being number one. The surprise to me was San Francisco & Washington DC, both of which are going to rise up the list though.

Los Angeles has benefited greatly by port services. Bay Area & Seattle are both greatly going to increase too, you've got a great point, in time I can see Bay Area surpassing much on that list to crack the top 10.

I agree that Dallas and Philly should have been included, but doesn't it stand to reason that the more likely answer is that they just barely missed the cut. I mean, what point would there be in just totally ignoring them in favor of 3 cities in the same country using the same methodology.

After considering your other thread, I have to agree.

SF and DC are an interesting pair to watch in coming years.

I'm surprised Dallas and Philly weren't up there, but Miami, Houston, and Atlanta all deserve spots IMO.
