Report: Tucson among top 10 US cities best-positioned to thrive after pandemic

Tucson has been named among the top 10 cities best positioned to thrive following the pandemic.

The report, from Moody’s Analytics, argues that the generation growing up today may recall the impact of the COVID-19 crisis and be more likely to pursue careers and live in less-densely-packed places.

In addition to population density, the report takes into consideration the share of jobs requiring a college or graduate degree in 100 metro areas — an indicator of an economy’s ability to provide high-paying jobs to would-be residents.
