This is from the Brookings Institute which measured STEM and R&D job growth in the 100 largest metropolitan areas in the country. Nashville had the fastest growing advanced industries job sector between 2013-2015 in the country, and Memphis came in 8th. Here's the top 10:

metro area...% annual growth
  1. Nashville...7.9%
  2. San Francisco-Oakland...7.9%
  3. Jackson MS...7.6%
  4. Cape Coral-Ft Myers FL...7.6%
  5. Kansas City...7.2%
  6. Raleigh...7.0%
  7. Charlotte...6.7%
  8. Memphis...6.3%
  9. Toledo OH...6.3%
  10. Provo UT...6.3%


Tennessee has four metro areas among the nation's 100 largest. Here's how they fared.

metro area...% annual growth...#advanced industry jobs...natl rank...% of all jobs
  1. Nashville...7.9%...82,206...30...8.8%
