24/7WallSt.com launches stat sites for 20 cities
24/7 Wall St.com has launched city statistics sites for 20 major cities that give information about a city’s metro demographics, municipal financials and government performance, economies and businesses.
Editor in chief Douglas McIntyre writes, “The city stats sites are created from the 24/7 Wall St. databases, which the publication has used for seven years to produce stories about important trends across the United States and across the globe, as well as in America’s cities and states. Many of the articles, particularly those about education, race, crime, real estate and state and city management, have become benchmarks used by national media. 24/7 Wall St. stories appear regularly at MSN, AOL, Yahoo, The Huffington Post, USAToday and CNN MoneyStream.
“The new city sites have interactive tables that compare each metro’s income, housing, population, labor, crime and health figures to those of all other major metros in the same state, to the national average and to the highest and lowest rankings among the nation’s 381 metro areas.
“Each site has versions of 24/7 Wall St. national stories about cities, and where each metro ranks within the context of these articles based on research and reporting for the entire country. Each of the city sites is updated with two or three stories every week that focus on the unique data for its metro.”
