Nashville is the largest metropolitan area in the central South. The Nashville Economic Market comprises 10 counties - Cheatham, Davidson, Dickson, Maury, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson, Wilson - and more than 1.5 million in population.
Nashville’s economy is uniquely diverse, which accounts for the area's resilience in a fluctuating global environment. Continual job creation is the result of a variety of growing industries such as Retail, Professional and Business Services, Education, Health Care, Leisure and Hospitality, Transportation and Construction. The area benefits from low unemployment, substantial international investment, continual expansion, and a well-trained labor force undergoing constant renewal through our 24 colleges and universities.
