Thank you Yuri, I always appreciate the work you put in to provide this data. Glad to see with the 2017 numbers Cleveland has now grown faster than the national average. I would say its a nice surprise, but as someone who lives here and works in local government, its not a surprise. Our economy has been on fire lately, which as been a welcome change from the last few decades. Not only with regards to GDP, but jobs wise, the metro area is finally back to the level we were in 2000, when that recession led to the start of a long period of stagnation (in addition to the Great Recession). The last four months now YOY jobs growth has been at sunbelt levels, comparable to Portland, Denver, and Charlotte.
