WASHINGTON (Forbes) – Several Texas cities are poised for a quick recovery from the national recession, according to Forbes.
Austin–Round Rock ranked first on the magazine’s recent list of ten cities most likely to bounce back quickly.
Meanwhile, San Antonio ranked fifth, Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington seventh and McAllen-Edinburg-Mission ninth.
To compile its list, Forbes looked at estimates from Moody’s Economy.com of the projected gross domestic product of metropolitan areas across the United States, as well as unemployment figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and home prices, incomes and affordability data from the National Association of Home Builders.
Forbes also put together a list of ten worst cities for recession recovery. No Texas cities made that list.
