Peer City Identification Tool

Interesting tool from the Chicago Federal Reserve. Finds peer cities based on some criteria that you can select. Good for the city nerds out there.

Didn't know where else to post this so if any mods want to move it you're welcome to.
http://www.omaha.com/columnists/kelly/kelly-omaha-ranked-fourth-best-city-with-population-under-million/article_07f01697-7020-5165-930d-bb0a06eb37de.html
Among cities under 1 million population, Omaha was ranked fourth-best in the country by a New York-based consultant — and No. 1 in the category of prosperity.

Omaha also ranked fourth and fifth, respectively, in the subcategories of culinary and nightlife.

“The result,” said Resonance Consultancy Inc., “is a curated waterfront, robust public art and a resilient downtown boasting some of the Midwest’s most impressive restaurants and nightlife, getting more diverse with every Old Market District opening.”

Honolulu ranked No. 1 overall in the under-1 million list, followed by Tucson, Arizona, and Charleston, South Carolina. Des Moines was 24th and Lincoln, 26th.

Resonance, with more than three decades of experience advising on real estate, tourism and economic development, created the rankings by comparing 27 factors.

The firm described the prosperity category, in which Omaha ranked at the top, as “a city’s employment, median household income and corporate head offices.”

The overall model for the ranking, the consultancy said, was an analysis of “key factors that Mobile Millennials — Americans aged 20 to 36 who have traveled in the past year — consider to be most important in choosing a city to live or visit.”

The Big O finished 13th in “quantity of stories referenced and recommendations shared online” and eighth in “a city’s key institutions, attractions and infrastructure.”

But our city ranked slightly below average in “education attainment and diversity.” And it ranked only average in the category of place, or “perceived quality of the natural and built environment.”

Resonance said Omaha’s middle-of-the-pack place ranking is poised to rise “with the evolution of its riverfront and planned urban projects inspired by the strikingly elegant, $22 million pedestrian bridge.”


Imagine how much of a difference our riverfront being developed correctly would add to our image.
