The Scout Vision® Jobs Score Index rates neighborhoods on a 1-5 scale according to how many high paying jobs are within commuting range of the location. We consider short, medium and longer one way commute times of 15, 30, and 45 minutes and sum up the total number of jobs paying at least $75,000 within each. Then every neighborhood is ranked relative to both other neighborhoods in the region and all other neighborhoods in the nation.
