Albuquerque Tops Forbes’ List of Best Places to Do Business 

“You’ve come a long way baby”— that is Albuquerque has. The May issue of Forbes
Magazine has the Duke City ranked number one as the best place for business and careers. 

Albuquerque moved up from its number five spot last year to take the number one spot.
Raleigh, NC was number two, and Houston, TX number three. 

The rankings were based upon the analysis of the cost of doing business, job growth and income growth for the last five years, educational attainment (how many people have college degrees), migration to the city, crime statistics (which was its weakest category), number of higher education institutions, culture and leisure, and the cost of living. 

Way to go Albuquerque!
