The map conforms to the pattern of an economy recovering around the twin pillars of energy and knowledge. North Dakota, the center of the natural gas boom, leads the way by a huge margin with 940 new jobs per 10,000 people. Next is D.C., where a thriving knowledge economy is bolstered by a large government presence. Utah, with its booming tech economies in young cities like Provo, comes in third, followed by Texas, which combines an energy economy around Houston with knowledge and tech hubs around Austin and Dallas. Here, the nearly 800,000 total new jobs translate into 299 positions per 10,000 residents. Colorado, itself a hub for knowledge and energy, is in fifth, and California, with its knowledge economies around the Bay Area, San Diego and L.A., is in sixth.
