Jacksonville, Fla., jumped ahead in The Wall Street Journal/Moody’s Analytics rankings for 2021 when it became the fifth-hottest job market after placing 15th in 2020 and 27th in 2019 in the assessment of 300 metro areas based on five factors: unemployment and labor-force participation rates, job, labor-force and wage growth. Jacksonville profited during the pandemic from its position as a logistics hub with a seaport, two major interstate highways and rail and air connections, says Albert Loh, professor of economics at the University of North Florida. Data company Dun & Bradstreet Inc. last year said it would move its headquarters to Jacksonville from New Jersey.
