This can't be true. I would rather stay where I am. The south maybe cheaper, but the weather is bad. To many problems with mother nature.

i love to see how most of you people see throught these bs.. stories. don't you love how most people will believe anything as long as it comes from an American news station. Some of these places are only getting better due to bad economy causing more crime and so government has no choice but to create more government jobs(police firefighters, hospital staff,...etc.) and they are saying economy is getting better, Yes its true its not plunging as it used to but the only reason is, its because its reaching rock bottom and there is no deeper than that. Make the people believe in what you want them to and you have them they will be your slaves they'll do what you want them to. As a citizen I've noticed that an average American will believe what he/she sees on tv and hears through the media without any hard proof, after all that's what we been taught in school not to question or defy the government. and that's why we never ask for any proof.  If we asked questions and longed for evidence we wouldn't even fight these wars(invasions) where average Americans are giving their life so that some rich bast====ard can fill his pockets.... and economy is only crashing so that the barrier between rich and middle class can be expanded too many small business owners were rapidly growing and now they have become homeless and poor.  what hurts me the most is that there is a seriously huge percentage of War Veterans that are homeless and on the streets. People go fight for this animals that want to fill their pockets with more greed and when they come back they can't even get a stupid 7$ an hour job.!!!!

I lived in some of those places. Just unloaded my house in San Antonio. Now I am happy in Dog Canyon NM with my airstrip and my well. KEEP YOUR CITIES I DO NOT WANT THEM ANYMORE.

Alright....................El Paso Tx with a good economy?...............but the problem with El Paso is that it is called the minimum wage city how can you live with minimum wages in a city that has rices inceses in food and services every 6 mos., I'm from El paso and had to relocate to California because I tought that here things will be better, well Im working and that is  a great advantage, but let me tell you.........don't pack your things and start moving to El Paso because you won't get anywhere unless you ant to make miserable wages.

They must have not checked outside of Texas because I've been out of work since January and it's really hard to find a good job here.SadI've Lived in Texas most of my life but I'm really from Chicago,and if I had the cash I'd move back up there because I've been told by a few of my friends they had no problem on work searches.

The only reason Texass looks so good right now is due to years of being the lowest in all ,
 Housing jobs prices so high you couldn't buy any thing,
So now that there at a stand still they look good,
 All the rest of the states where all doing way better for years ,,and Texass was the one needing all the help from every one else.
 How do I know all this ,I lived in Texass for 5 years and watched it fall lower and lower every year.
Now I live in the middle mid west and other then the housing market crashing its doing pretty good.
Most cities have 8% or less for unemployment and prices on things are still pretty good.
So all this bragging from people in texass,is all a show ,same as there great X press Bush did ,a show is all. They are good at putting on a show .
But real truth is is it is all false. just a show.

As far as what all you read of the other cities ,well only way to find out truth on that is go there .
We all know the news is one of the biggest B.S. reports you can get now a days.
They say what they are told to and nothing more.
 And as far as the ones doing the studies on all this . Hum well lets see here how good they really are.
Testing the flow of catsup cost $686,000.00 testing how long it takes to lick a tootsie roll pop $489,328.00 and soon down the line,,
Seems they don't know crap if you ask me , If it takes that much money to test some thing ,then no they have no real idea of any thing.

Can all the media outlets PLEASE quit telling people to move here? SA used to be a great place to live but now that all the carpet baggers have moved in, traffic is miserable, pollution is outrageous, the landscape is atrocious AND jobs for those of us actually invested in the community are disappearing (in favor of less qualified individuals.) Pouring more and more people into one central location is probably not the best of ideas. I feel for people who are in areas where economic recovery is unlikely to happen; relocation may be their only option. But for those out there chasing the money, suck it up and ride it out.

San Antonio, having a hard time with that one. My sister and I are both unemployed and have been since May and June. Looking daily, there is nothing!

Don't knock the south till you try it!  I am a southern girl through and through and would live no where else.  Can't stand the cold or the west.  Lived in MS, AR, LA, and TN and have traveled all over the US.  Love the northeast but couldn't stand the cold.  I have made 6 figures for the last 4 years till the recession and have been unemployed for 7 months.  I was in pharma.  Still the cost is cheaper and the people are the friendliest you'll find in this country.  We had a blast in Baton Rouge; even through Katrina.   The food is the best and you can't beat our football either.  So stop blasting the south unless you've tried it.  The cold is just not for me or the bad bbq up north.

I work in maybe the last place that will be effected by the miserable US economy - an Indian Reservation!  HAHA!  Black Sheep  Conservative?  Liberal?  Try Communist.  If you enjoy looking at life's absurdities, this is the place for you.  Packing up what little possessions you have left and moving to a job on a reservation is pretty doable.  Housing is provided, rent and utilities get deducted from your paycheck, free socialized healthcare (sometimes better than no health care at all, but take it from one who has experienced it - let's not socialize medicine folks!), a roof over your head and food on the table.  A place to wait things out until the economy bounces back.   I live close to Albuquerque so I'm not isolated.  Albuquerque has nice weather and pretty nice people.  It's got it has liberals and it has conservatives, too.  Pricey houses it you want them.  Cheap rent if you want that.  Clean mountain air.  Moderate sunny dry weather.  I don't know of many people out of work here although a few people I know have taken lesser paying jobs than they once had.

As much as I have been dreading the move from PA to MD, house hunting in Northern MD (outside the DC traffic chaos) has gotten me a little more excited about the move. Seeing the area is doing well per stats anyway is somewhat reassuring.


Two things all these stats don't track are the people who are still unemployed, but no longer collecting benefits, and those that a year ago made $30/hr but have since found employment at $11/hr....

You must be kidding. Whoever does this survey has no clue, please do not hire him for any business/political survey - you will loose!!!!

hhhhhh you think i would move to texas and leave ca.  and sweat like pig love ca.

Come on guys even with a 12% unemployment rate there is 88% employment. Something is going on. Somebody is paying somebody. Don't get me wrong I'm hurting too, after losing my company last year, changing career fields and generally being in the line of fire behind the fan. I know just because of the demand for commerce it will happen. Just stop voting with your hearts and use your brains next time you go to the poles.
And King Gado watch the Texas is bigger s**t, or we here in Alaska will split in half and make you the third largest state. Send us more money guys we need another bridge!
