It was compiled by combining the rate of improvement in four key areas: 1) percent employment change, 2) percentage point change in unemployment rate, 3) percent change in gross metropolitan product, and 4) percent change in house prices.

Here's the specific listing on Little Rock.

Nowhere to go but up.
