Providence Ranked 94th Out of 102 Cities for Economic Ranking

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

 

The new is bad. Just plain bad for Mayor Angel Taveras and the City of Providence.

Providence ranks 94th among all U.S. cities in a new index tracking the economic strength of the nation's largest metro areas. What is worse? Only 102 cities were ranked.

The bottom three - Riverside, CA (100), Las Vegas (101) and Tampa St. Pete (102).

Oklahoma City was ranked first in the country and Boston ranked ninth. 

The report was developed by a coalition of business journals.
