Jacksonville not a popular city for young people starting careers

On Numbers analyzed 65 metros with populations above 800,000, searching for qualities that would appeal to workers in their 20s and early 30s. The study’s 10-part formula gave superior marks to places with strong growth rates, moderate costs of living, and substantial pools of young adults who are college-educated and employed.

Jacksonville ranked 43rd out of the 65 metros, with a 1.94 opportunity score for young adults. Bringing the area down was a -1.14 percent job growth rate from 2006 to 2011.
