Respectable rankings from eastern NC cities!

excerpt from Inc.com...

To compile the rankings, Inc. measured current-year employment growth, as well as average annual job growth over the past three years and compared job growth in the first and second halves of the period comprising the past 10 years. The big difference this year is the number of communities surveyed. In years past, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which generates the job-growth data, surveyed 274 metropolitan statistical areas, or MSAs. This year, BLS surveyed 393--which has allowed us to paint a far more accurate picture of where the action really is.

I don't understand the scale used.

According to the Inc.com website, the number listed to the right of each city is the number of nonfarm jobs there are in that metro area (in the 1000s).
