For this week’s "By the Numbers," we release the last segment of our talent cluster analysis.  This week we examine the top clusters for small metros (250K and below).

As we’ve done the past three weeks, we list the top three small regions for each cluster.     Our rankings are based on three criteria: size of the labor force, LQ, and salary.

I think you accidentally skipped the 'mid-sized' (ie. 250k-500k) regions.

OK, I found the mid-sized report here:

It wasn't in the 'by the numbers' category, which made it hard to find.
