Map of the Day

By Richard Florida

Here's a map of job postings by metro area (h/t: Steven Pedigo).

The map controls for population. D.C. has the most openings and Baltimore is second. San Jose, Austin, Hartford, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Denver, Boston, Las Vegas, Charlotte, and San Francisco all are doing reasonably well, relatively speaking.

Detroit has the fewest openings and comes in dead last, again. Miami. Buffalo, Rochester, L.A., and Chicago are doing poorly.

The full list of cities is here.
