Nice job Topher - unfortunate to see Greenville SC continues to suffer (at least for sunbelt standards). Raleigh & Charlotte are obviously doing well, the same goes - as usual - for FL cities.

OKC - 7,600 - 1.4% Total 559,700

Tulsa - 9,100 - 2.3% Total 441,300

Tulsa's increase is very significant as I believe they lost about 20,000 jobs at the beginning of this decade.

MSA-wise, Columbia is beginning to wake up from a little NAFTA nap. City-wise and university-wise it is poised for significant gains on the jobs front.

And Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson is gobbling up headquarters and major expansions weekly. It is a great era to be living in the state of SC - at least in any of the larger metros. :D
