Study: Philadelphia's a ‘Slow-Growth' City

When it comes to growth, Philadelphia has often been a laggard and a new study highlights how slow the city is in its pace of economic expansion.

WalletHub performed an analysis of 515 U.S. cities and 14 indicators of economic growth between 2009 and 2015 and the high-profile personal finance website found that Philadelphia is the 15th slowest-growing large city. Some of the metrics that were evaluated included population growth rate, college-educated population growth as well as unemployment rate decrease.

The fastest growing metro area is Austin, Texas.
