    The study ranked cities based on industry growth, population and housing changes, and workforce opportunities.

    As a follow-up study, the financial product comparison site released another list, ranking the biggest boomtowns for millennials using those same metrics.

    Although North Carolina had less of a presence on the list, two cities in the Tar Heel State broke the top 15.

    Raleigh came in sixth on the list, receiving a total score of 69.8 out of a possible 100, and Charlotte ranked 12th, with a total score of 56.3.
