Exclamation Correct answer

The CORRECT answer is Lincoln, Nebraska. The current unemployment rate there is around 4.2%. That is the lowest number in the country, and the city has more than 50,000 inhabitants. There is about 250,000 - 300,000 inhabitants in Lincoln.

When it comes to major cities it would be the Washington, D.C. MSA.

Default Correct City

Lincoln is a fairly large city. It has about 260,000 - 300,000 people. That's a fairly large city.
