Analysis: Phoenix Cracks Top 10 US Cities For Job Growth

An analysis by economists at ASU finds Phoenix has cracked the top 10 cities in the U.S. for job growth, with 3.1 percent growth in 2016 over 2015.

Arizona is also in the top 10 states for the first time since 2013, with 2.6 percent year-over-year growth.

Lee McPheters is a professor in the W.P. Carey School of Business at ASU and worked on crunching the numbers.
