Three Williamson County cities placed among the top 10 best places in Tennessee to get a job, according to a recent study by Zippia.
Coming in first, second and third were Nolensville, Brentwood and Spring Hill, respectively. Neither Nashville nor Franklin made the list.
The study took into account more than 100 locations in Tennessee with populations over 5,000 people by factoring in unemployment rate, recent job growth, sales tax and median household income.
In Nolensville, there is an unemployment rate of 3.9 percent among its 5,812 residents. The city also holds a $100,319 median household income.
“Nolensville rocked out across the board in a way I haven’t seen in my travels with Zippia,” the site posted.
“It ranks as having the best unemployment rate and prospects for future job growth in Tennessee. Additionally, it ranked in the top five for every other category.”
Brentwood, with its 37,288 population (though that number broke 40,000 in a recent census) holds a 4 percent unemployment rate and touts a #133,304 median household income.
“Brentwood takes second place for access to jobs in Tennessee, “the data analytics site wrote.
“And, to quickly clarify, they are the jobs of the awesome kind, boasting the highest household median income of any place in Tennessee. It ranks only slightly behind Nolensville overall, but with an employment rate only .1% higher and a household median income $30,000 higher, second place really isn’t all that bad.”
And for Spring Hill, 3.9 percent of its 28,764 population is unemployment, and residents hold a $76,011 median household income.
“Spring Hill is a spring chicken when it comes to jobs — they are here and they are plentiful, “the site said.
“The city tied Nolensville for the lowest unemployment rate in the state and the best prospects for future job growth. The only real difference, besides the size of the cities, is the household median income. However, a median household income that’s 50% above the national average won’t make residents super eager to leave town any time soon.”
Following the three Williamson County cities were:
- Mount Juliet
- Green Hill
