Today we came across the following infographic by way of the ABJ. As we all know, the population of Austin has been growing at a rapid pace over the past 20 years, and has seemed to accelerate the last 5 years.
Local Web Design company Complete Web Resources recently published the following image, summarizing their take on why people are relocating to Austin and the central Texas area as a whole.
As you can see, the high tech and internet industries are toward the top of the list for industries that attract new talent. The infographic also includes some interesting data about our cost of living and cost of housing, which are apparently independent. One is going up but the other is shown as being low / competitive. Not sure how that plays out in the long run, and we think it makes sense to check out their sources.
Anyway, here’s the infographic for your viewing pleasure. If you want to see the original post, go to their page Why Everyone Is Moving to Austin. Enjoy!
