It’s a great time to be in Austin!

Beverly Kerr’s Economy in Perspective this week compiles information from a recent Brookings Institute report and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas which shows that Austin ranked:

• Number One in the US and 26th in the world for jobs and income growth during the current economic recovery,
• Third highest among the 100 largest metros for innovative capacity, producing 27 patents per 10,000 workers,
• Third highest in the nation for net in-migration and
• Eighth in the nation for high level of college degree attainment
