Calling All Public Accoutants: Rate Your City


SmartAsset, the free web app which features financial and personal wealth information for everyday folks, just published a ranking of 10 Best Cities for Young Professionals for 2018. The list is diverse and may hold some surprises for those who might be looking for locations such as San Diego or Atlanta.


How did SmartAsset determine the Top 10? Cities were measured by nine metrics: percent of residents between the ages of 25 and 34, the unemployment rate for young adults, the labor force participation rate for young adults, median rent, entertainment establishment rate, job diversity, median earnings, earnings change over time and median housing costs as a percent of median earnings.


The Winners Are:


  1. Sioux Falls, SD
  2. Raleigh, NC
  3. San Francisco, CA
  4. Pittsburgh, PA
  5. Seattle, WA
  6. Austin, TX
  7. Minneapolis, MN
  8. Omaha, NE
  9. Arlington, VA
  10. Anchorage, AK


Keep in mind this list is of cities deemed best for ALL young professionals. This got me wondering. How would Public Accountants rate their city?
