Area job market sizzles
It may seem like the area's economy is just limping along, but Gallup ranked D.C. and Maryland as the second- and fifth-best job markets in the nation for 2010. What's more: the District was also the second most-improved job market in the country.
The polling outfit credited the growth of the federal government for both the District and Maryland's high placement on the new survey. Virginia didn't fare as well: Gallup ranked it as one of the states with the least improvement in job creation.
One caveat: The survey is based on workers' perceptions rather than hard economic data. Gallup conducted nearly 200,000 interviews with workers across the country and aggregated the results to create the rankings.
