It appears the number of jobs leaving is greater than the number coming in.

I don't know where this magazine retained info for it's rankings, but I just don't see it in the case for Greensboro or High Point. And for 'industry' one thinks of manufacturing. With the recent closures and layoffs, especially the loss of over 600 call center jobs, the gains for last year were virtually wiped out and put Greensboro in the red. Some of these magazine rankings boil down to being some writer's opinion.

Industry is a very broad term.

I guess they aren't thinking in terms of net gains/losses.
