Affordability and education: keys to San Antonio's long-term growth


  • Michelle Hahn
  • Michelle Olivier
  • Keith R. Phillips


This article analyzes San Antonio's competitiveness compared with a group of peer MSAs defined by similar attributes of location, industry composition, demographics, tourism and population size. Our analysis finds that San Antonio remains very economically competitive and likely will continue to enjoy above-average growth in the long run, although the Alamo City does face long-term challenges due to a less-educated population.
