The magazine’s ranking of the nation’s 200 largest metro areas is based on 12 factors related to jobs, costs (business and living), income growth, quality of life, and education of the labor force.

Earlier this month, an annual ranking by Area Development magazine rated Denver the best metro area in the nation for economic development and jobs, and three other Colorado cities placed in the top 20.
