In recent years, Pittsburgh has been hailed as the “new Brooklyn” or the “new Portland.” Some people have even described it as the “new Hollywood.” While you won’t find Brooklyn Jr. or even L.A. Lite in this Pennsylvania city, you WILL be pleasantly surprised by its livability.
But first, let’s define livability.
In a recently released study, the Graduate Opportunity Index, two firms did an analysis of housing market data from Trulia and employment data from LinkedIn to rank the best cities for new graduates. Rankings were determined by factors like availability of entry-level jobs, age and education level of the general population, and cost of housing.
Believe it or not, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania came out on top, with a Graduate Opportunity Index of 0.85 out of 1.0.
Losing cities—often thought of as popular destinations for recent graduates—included Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
