For the second year in a row Sioux Falls has been ranked number nine in the nation for strongest economy.
And city leaders say they aren't surprised.
They say while other cities around the nation were falling victim to the economic downturn Sioux Falls didn't. City leaders say that's because Sioux Falls has a diverse economy, meaning the city isn't dependent on just one source of income.
They say having two of the top 100 hospitals in the country brings in money. Also the large agricultural population stimulates the economy. And they say the strong economy will only get stronger.
How quickly Sioux Falls has been expanding and developing has played an important role in the strong economy.
City leaders say the higher quality of life the city has means more companies will want to expand to here.
