The strength of the North Texas economy and job market was reinforced with a recent survey by WalletHub ranking the lowest and highest cities in terms of population need. Plano ranked #4 on the list from North Texas with a #2 on the “economic well-being rank.” The complete list of North Texas cities with their ranking order are:
Grand Prairie (30)
Fort Worth (47)
To find the cities with the lowest and highest population need, WalletHub analyzed the largest 150 cities across the U.S. with a focus on economic well-being – which focuses on factors such as high school completion and opportunities for women – and health and safety – which examines food security and access to health insurance.
