Default Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings: Columbia a strongest-performing metro

This report ranks the nation's 100 largest metros in numerous categories according to how well they are recovering from the Great Depression, and then ranks them according to how well they are performing overall. Columbia is in the strongest performance overall group.
