• Measuring Productivity: A recent report from The American Growth Project ranked the economic productivity (the level of income generated by a given amount of labor) of cities across the country. 2022's top performers include San Francisco, Seattle, New York and Houston while cities like New Orleans, Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City made the largest jump in productivity.
