Texas is no stranger to top ten lists and with the Milken Institue’s list of Best Performing Cities, the state again has taken top honors. Ten cities in Texas were named to the list which took into account factors such as job creation, expanding employment, wages, and overall economics (you can view the full report and read more about the criteria here). The list of best performing cities was broken down by large and small cities and Texas received nods in each. For small cities, Victoria (3rd), Midland (6th), and College Station-Bryan (8th) were named to the list, while on the large cities list it was Austin (2nd – only beaten out by San Francisco), Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown (7th), Fort Worth-Arlington (8th), Dallas-Plano-Irving (9th), San Antonio-New Braunfels (10th), Laredo (18th), and Lubbock (20th).
Texas continues to impress economists and list makers, so expect to see more top honors in the future.
