Albuquerque ranks 152 in the country when it comes to the best places in the U.S. for business and careers.
That’s according to the latest ranking of 200 cities in the U.S. by Forbes magazine, which finds Denver as the best city for business and careers. Forbes crunched the numbers on the 401 metropolitan statistical areas in the U.S. to gauge the best and worst business climates.
Raleigh, N.C., Portland, Ore., Provo, Utah, and Atlanta round out the top five in the 2015 Forbes list. The magazine’s ranking of the nation’s 200 largest metro areas is based on 12 factors related to jobs, costs (business and living), income growth, quality of life and education of the labor force.
Albuquerque doesn’t show up until the bottom quarter of the list, largely because it ranks poorly in job growth (192 out of 200). The Duke City fares better in the cost of doing business (No. 79) and education (No. 85).
