Nashville Ranks Among Top 10 U.S. Cities That Grew The Most In 2010

For some of the country’s largest cities, last year was a good one for growth. None less than the technology hub otherwise known as San Jose.

Metropolitan economies grew by 2.5 percent last year, measured by gross domestic product, according to recent statistics from the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

Some cities, however, have other industries to thank for their economic expansion. San Jose, located in the heart of Silicon Valley, saw some of the strongest GDP growth thanks much in part to the information industry that surrounds it. Indeed, 3.6 percent of its 13.4 percent growth is attributed to the tech sector.
