Where is the Best Place to Work in Manufacturing?
It’s been said that there are only three Big Questions you need to answer in life:
What do you want to do for a living?
Where do you want to live?
Who do you want to live with?
These are difficult questions to answer, especially because they’re all interrelated. There are the immediate concerns, such as cost of living, but there are also long-term factors to consider, including job and income growth.
SmartAsset, a financial technology company, analyzed data from 483 metro areas in terms of six factors:
Manufacturing as a Percentage of the Workforce
Job Growth from 2010 to 2015
Job Growth from 2014 to 2015

The data was collected from the Census Bureau’s 2010 and 2015 County Business Patterns Surveys and the Census Bureau’s 2015 American Community Survey.
