Why? Because Seattle is not on the list? Seems pretty neutral since it is Atlanta based and Atlanta is not near the top. What makes you say that other than your town is not there?

As far as Texas killing it, that is true, but Chicago seems to be stabbing faster.

Because I'm in commercial real estate (focusing on marketing, PR, and market trends) and consider it poorly done click-bait.

Doesn't look very realistic to me.

Chicago is supposedly getting all these new jobs with these new expansions that put it on par with the likes of Dallas, yet its job growth and population growth still leave a lot to be desired.

Seems like you're unaware of the rapid job growth happening in Chicago: http://www.chicagobusiness.com/artic...eak-in-decades

As far as population growth goes, this article does a good job of explaining things: Two Graphs Show Why the Chicago Area Is Losing Population | Chicago magazine | Politics & City Life March 2018

Chicago isn't doing all that hot for job growth either actually. It is behind every other top 10 metro and near the bottom of the list.

Because the corporate expansions and movement has all been downtown recently. I believe that's what they were talking about, job growth in the city as opposed to the suburbs - something that hasn't really happened since the 1960's.

From 2010 to 2017 the number of jobs in Chicago grew 17% and the number of jobs downtown grew by 24%. The metro as a whole has only seen 13% job growth. There are around 600,000 jobs downtown as of spring 2017. That number just keeps growing, McDonalds for instance moved thousands of people downtown a few weeks ago.

The central county of Cook County has gained around 250,000 jobs since 2010.

The metro as a whole though is 122,000 jobs above its 2008 peak. Illinois is what's doing very poorly. Illinois is still down from it's 2008 peak by 69,000. That's a disconnect of almost 200,000 jobs for the state less Chicago.

They're leaving Denver after 25 years because Socal is where the new CEO lives. Amazing he can just say "eh, yeah, time to go, I'm not flying back and forth. Nope." Amazing. He's like a new sports team owner.
