In real estate circles, it’s all about “location, location, location.” The same could be said for landing a job. And a new study ranks Austin among the best locations in the U.S. to hunt for work.
The study, conducted by personal finance website WalletHub, places Austin among the top 20 cities in the country. To determine the strongest local job markets in the U.S., WalletHub compared more than 180 cities across 30 key metrics, including availability of jobs, employment growth, and monthly average starting salary.
The data for each city in the study falls into two buckets: job market and socioeconomics. Austin, a perennial favorite on lists of the best places for jobs, appears at No. 16 in the WalletHub ranking. The Capital City comes in at No. 17…

That's a tragic statistic, but it's only a slight increase—just 0.3 percent—over 2017. A decade-long trend shows a more positive outlook; overall, homelessness has declined by 13 percent since 2010. An innovative “housing-first” approach, which recognizes the importance of stable housing first and foremost, is partly responsible for the improvement.
While the people experiencing homelessness are, of course, a diverse group, some fundamental needs are shared. Creating a sense of security, privacy, and dignity is always necessary, says Jill Pable, a professor in Florida State…

Now, 50+ years later, things have flipped dramatically.
