Among others, San Diego metro area is one of the top 20 fastest growing economies
The San Jose metro economy is among the largest growing economies, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. San Jose’s 8.9 percent growth led the 292 metro areas that saw their local economies grow last year. San Francisco, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Diego metro areas also ranked in the top 20 fastest growing economies at growth rates of 4.1 percent, 3.9 percent, 3.8 percent, and 2.5 percent, respectively.
While the economies of most major American metro areas have fully recovered, many smaller cities are still struggling to climb back to pre-recession levels.
