Williamson County earned the No. 3 slot on CNN Money’s “Where the jobs are” list. The list identified the top 25 counties in the nation that have had high job growth rates.
Williamson County’s job growth from 2000–11 was 73.8 percent, according to the listing, which also cited the county’s incentives for companies and low property taxes as a reason for the ranking.
“The rapid development of nearby Austin has spurred the growth of so-called ‘super suburbs’ like Williamson County’s Round Rock and Cedar Park, where affordable housing, cultural offerings and numerous parks and trails win points with young families,” CNN Money said.
