Miami Adding People And Jobs Faster Than Any Other Major City

The population in Miami has grown at a faster rate than any other large U.S. city since 2008, according to a new study.

Miami is also the top ranked city for full-time job growth. Proportionally, more full time jobs were created in Miami during that period than any other major city.

Overall, Miami ranks second behind Austin in Wallethub’s index of large cities that have expanded most rapidly in socioeconomic terms between 2008 and 2014. The index included 10 key metrics, and Miami also ranked highly in measures of poverty rate decrease, growth in the number of small businesses, and household income growth.

Data for the study was obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
