A new study ranks metro Atlanta fourth among nine Southeastern metro areas on a range of factors affecting economic growth.

The benchmarking index was compiled by Harrison Campbell, associate professor of geography at UNC Charlotte. He ranked the metro areas on employment and labor; income and productivity; livability and connectivity; new economy; and equity and diversity.

The Raleigh-Durham area achieved the No. 1 overall ranking, followed by Austin, Texas, Charlotte, N.C. Dallas ranked fifth, followed by Richmond, Va.; Nashville, Tenn.; Tampa, Fla.; and Jacksonville, Fla.
