ya but still.
its more accurate to portray growth in a range.
100% increase from 5 is 10 and so on.
Smaller numbers will have larger % increases.
Carmel/Fishers/Hamilton County is the fastest growing county in the midwest for its size.
of course you can find some smaller county that grew faster % wise but it isnt accurate as again its simple math. smaller numbers can have a jump and the % is higher.

No, it is accurate because it's simple math . The fact that a county goes from 50,000 to 100,000 doesn't make its 100% growth any less accurate than a county that goes from 300,000 to 600,000

Indiana too.
Our state has had very strong job growth. actually Indiana is neck and neck with Texas on job growth.
12.5% of the nations jobs were created in Indiana.
25% of the nations jobs were created in Indiana and Texas combined.
Mitch Daniels had done a wonderful job making our state affordable and wonderful to live in. Plus he has cut taxes and balanced the budget.

I would like to take this opportunity to respond at this time to next year's list in case Minneapolis/St Paul is not as well represented as it is this year.....

Next year's list is crap! The methodology is flawed and nobody in their right mind would want to live in those stupid towns.

looks like the Indianapolis area gets another accolade: The Cities With The Happiest Young Professionals - Forbes

Indianapolis is ranked 4th nationally not bad.
Goes to show Indy is a magnet for young professionals in the midwest.

I hear Forbes' methods for ranking topics is so scientific and complicated that even Stephen Hawking went "huh?"
