One interesting thing about DC: there are fewer Black teachers there than one might expect. I think one reason this might be the case is that Black women make up a lower share of the Black educated class in that metro. Black women make up about 80% of Black elementary and middle school teachers in most of these cities.

The flipside is also true with cops and detectives. Men are more likely to be drawn into law enforcement than women.

Very interesting. And DC also has all the federal law enforcement agencies in addition to local and state.

Miami is the one city on here that is noticeably weak. All of the other cities are pretty much where I expected them to be. I expected Miami to make a bit of a stronger showing though. I suppose that's why we don't hear much talk about it being a "mecca."

Young Black Professionals in Miami
Thanks Bajan Yankee for all data its really amazing when you actually see the numbers.

Miami isnt known for professional jobs. Its a tourist town. Not that Miami doesn't have professional jobs its just not the same level as NY,ATL and DC. A lot of young black professionals from florida (i.e. UM,FSU.Uof florida,Famu, Florida memorial graduates) move to NYC,ATL and DC for better professional jobs.

These threads always talk about existing black meccas. Or these threads go into atl vs DC debates. Those are tired threads. We should think about the future.I would like to see which large and small cities in future have the chance to grow into a black mecca? Any predictions anyone?

That's true. I just like seeing the numbers because it moves us beyond the "Whose clubs close after 4am" arguments. We all know what the "top" cities are, but it's interesting to see how some cities are unexpectedly stronger in some areas than others. Who would have guessed that Dallas has more dancers than Atlanta, Chicago and Washington, DC?

Dallas evidently has one of the largest Black ballet companies in the U.S. Learn something new everyday.

Wow, that's news to me too. Good stuff.

It's also interesting that Atlanta has more computer programmers than DC (although not by much) but DC beats Atlanta in most other tech-related occupations (software developers, web developers, database administrators).

NYC, DC, and Atlanta are all pretty close in the urban and regional planning category, and Dallas isn't far behind; there's a pretty notable drop-off after those four.

I really do appreciate you taking the time to supply all of this information!

Which is why you see the overwhelming amount of successful blacks stand out slight in comparison to Atlanta and often times New York. That is not solely due to having Federal Government nearby. Most of these positions are not due to the simple fact of having federal government presence. Please let DC be great.
