I posted these rankings a couple of weeks ago here. I guess it was the 2004 rankings. Anyway not very many people were happy with the rankings. I found it interesting though.

Columbia still had the strongest economic ranking in SC this year too I see.

Interestingly, most metropolitan areas in the Carolinas slipped a few spots in the 2005 rankings, the only exceptions being Greensboro-High Point, Goldsboro, and Fayetteville. Charlotte only fell 2 spots, but Florence fell 43 spots.

I'm glad to see that many cities in the south doing so well. I'm really glad to see Atlanta metro doing so well in spite of the economic one two punch she has faced in the last five years.
