Austin Ranked #1 in Best Metros for STEM Professionals

The demand for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) workers is indeed on the rise.  According to the latest analysis by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, STEM professions are projected to grow by 10.8% between 2022 and 2032. This growth rate significantly outpaces the projected growth rate of just 2.3% for all other occupations.

Austin ranked #1 in Best Metros for STEM Professionals with a total score of 64.70.  Cassandra Happe, WalletHub Analyst, said “STEM graduates have significantly higher earning potential than people in other fields, as well as access to more employment opportunities. Being in a city where STEM jobs are abundant can set people up for long-term success, as they can move between jobs without having to uproot their life. At the same time, the availability of remote work now allows people to do many STEM jobs from anywhere.”

WalletHub compared the 100 most populated U.S. metropolitan statistical areas across three key dimensions, “Professional Opportunities”, “STEM-Friendliness” and “Quality of Life.”
