SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY FEB 2, 2018

The Milken Institute has released its list of the Best Performing Cities in the U.S. Moving up 20 spots since the last rankings were released, the North Port-Sarasota-Manatee region was ranked sixth in the country, and best in the state, based on economic growth. The index uses a fact-based set of metrics such as job creation, wage gains and technology developments to evaluate the relative growth of metropolitan areas. While national and international political and economic forces can affect near-term performance and can lie beyond a region's control, the top-performing metros have cohesive strategies that allow them to leverage their assets more effectively. This information was measured over a five year time-span (2011–2016).
