In a benchmarking of midisized metros we are ranked 6th on a college destinations index
. I could quibble with some of the metrics, but it has compiled a lot of different stats worth looking at. Note where they have us as quantified and ranked for entrepreneurial activity compared to others. Might as well as be zero. Interesting that despite that we did pretty well. They rank large metros separately and among 'mid sized' metros they have ranked we are actually the largest. Also note we are far from last when it comes to 'earnings potential' fwiw.
There you go.
