Madison is falling in its best performing cities ranking.
A report issued by the Milken Institute shows that last year the city of Madison fell from 58th to 72nd in the annual report. The Best Performing Cities Index ranks locations based on worker pay growth, diversity, technological contributions and career opportunities. The co-author of the report noted that job growth was the sticking point that kept Madison from rising in the ranks. In 2017, Madison reportedly added jobs at a slower rate than the national average.
