Young adults, rejoice! According to a recent study by The Business Journals, you are good at picking a place to live.
The study which ranked all 102 major U.S. markets according to private-sector employment growth, cost of living and other economic factors determined that Oklahoma City is the seventh best place for the coveted 18-34 age demographic to call home.
Only three cities in the South managed higher rankings: Durham, N.C.; Houston; and Austin, Texas, which placed first overall. Tulsa placed 37th.
Good job, Oklahoma! No, really. We have good jobs.
The metro has long been considered recession-proof, with an unemployment rate consistently among the lowest in the country. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, OKC had an unemployment rate of 4.9 percent nearly three percentage points lower than the national average in February.
Unfortunately, the Business Journals study failed to take the success rate of local NBA franchises into account.
But if they did, we could definitely see OKC Serge-ing to the top. Get it? Fortunately, pun success rates werent included, either.
