Useful stuff. And Dick Whittington would have understood your findings and agreed with them.
PS. The expression ‘time period’ contains a redundancy. What else is a period but a stretch of time?
“In fact, all the cities with the highest increase in earnings are cities which, at the start of the period, had more high-skilled exporting jobs, jobs driving productivity growth and living standards.” I found this statement very interesting, do you happen to have an associated, similar graph displaying the strength in high-skilled exporting jobs, (based on specific cities), – which would demonstrate this apparent correlation?
Is there any information on the comparative costs associated with moving to the cities?
This article says nothing of the quality of life. Do I bring up my family in London where houses cost a fortune or in village where they have a happy and more free childhood with less pollution. I could earn 3 or 4 times the salary that I get in E Sussex and be miserable. Pointless. Money is not a very good all round measure of life. Most of us had a good time at University where we were least wealthy.
