A website called SmartAsset just published a new list of:
The Least-Stressed Cities in America – 2019 Edition
Bloomington made the list!
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the real unemployment rate is: https://www.bls.gov/eag/eag.il_bloomington_msa.htm
Since the survey claims they are using 2017 data, see the REAL unemployment rates in 2017: 2017 data
Not a 2.3% in sight!
If SmartAsset is to be believed, this area doesn’t having an affordable housing crisis!
I doubt Tari touts this study. Pushing for subsidized housing is hard when a study exists claiming it isn’t needed.
Maybe Illinois is a typo and should have been Indiana. Either that or the State Farm relocations, layoffs, and buyouts were a figment of people’s imaginations.
