Is your region attracting and developing skilled talent?
That’s the question we set out to answer with the Talent Attraction Scorecard. Our index uses five metrics to rank how every county has done drawing new residents, growing their skilled and overall workforces, and grabbing a greater share of skilled workers than other regions.
As a complement to this analysis, we separately ranked counties based on how they are attracting young talent by looking at the growth in college enrollment and millennial population per capita.
Lastly, we used cost-of-living-adjusted earnings to help explain why talent is (or is not) moving to these counties.
