But for a city as big as it is, the unemployment rate is relatively low, due in part to the presence of consumer products company Kimberly-Clark, calculator-maker Texas Instruments and video game retailer GameStop.

Unemployment rate: 8.5%
Average income: $41,667
Number of Fortune 500 companies: 22
Metro area median rent: $1,020
Gas: $161
Dining out: $288
