Manpower Reserve Affairs has compiled a list of the top 50 metropolitan areas with the most personnel in offices, and it includes locations such as Atlanta, Washington, DC, and San Francisco.
In the top 10 is Arlington, Virginia.
In fifth place is Charlotte, North Carolina.
In 10th place is Louisville, Kentucky.
The list includes locations like Houston, San Diego, and Chicago.
The top 50 is not the only data-driven ranking.
Manpower Institute’s website lists cities with the highest number of employees in various roles.
This data is useful because the top employers in the United States are not only companies with offices in a city, but also companies with people at home, and the top companies with employees in their homes.
Some cities may be more than a city.
As the United Nations’ World Economic Forum noted in its “2015 Global Competitiveness Report,” cities that have a population of at least 1 million people are “highly competitive.”
A city with a population less than 100,000 people is considered “not competitive.”
And even a city with fewer than 1 million residents is considered to be “not economically competitive.”
Manpower Institute data show that in 2015, San Francisco had the third highest per capita income in the nation, with a median household income of $55,821.
The top 10 cities with a high percentage of workers in offices are: Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Memphis, Detroit, New Orleans, and Philadelphia.
The next-highest percentage is Honolulu, Hawaii, at 11.4 percent.

In total, the top ten are: Los Angeles, New York City, Washington D.C., Chicago, Miami, Dallas, and Minneapolis.
