The two cities that I have chosen to evaluate for economic differences are Jeffersonville, Indiana which lies in the Clark County Area and San Diego, California witch lies in the County of San Diego Area. The two most important factors for me when moving would be the job opportunities and climate. I will evaluate these and also cost of living expenses.
