Two cities in the Charlotte metro area earned prominent positions in a recent study identifying the nation’ top “boomtowns.”
As the nation’s economic recovery from Covid-19 continues, financial planning website SmartAsset recently took a look at where growth is occurring on the local level. To do so, it analyzed the most current economic data for the 500 largest U.S. cities across seven metrics: population change, unemployment change, change in unemployment rate, GDP growth rate, business growth, housing growth and change in household income.
After crunching the numbers, it designated the 50 cities with the highest scores as the “top boomtowns in America.”
Rock Hill ranked at No. 12, receiving 90.88 points out of a total 100. It earned the top spot of cities in the Charlotte region. Concord, with a score of 89.83, followed closely at No. 14, tying with New Braunfels, Texas.
