Top 15 Counties with the Most Job Growth

| by Michael Allen

Jobs are the theme in this year's upcoming presidential election, but beyond the rhetoric, Americans may be wondering where are the jobs right now? If you're lacking employment, geography may be playing a part.

Money magazine recently compiled a list of counties that have seen the biggest job growth in 2010 to 2011. The job growth may be due to factors such as local tax structures, tech jobs [Loudoun County, VA] and also government jobs [yes, the government does create jobs].

    1.    Loudoun County, VA: 83.6 percent job growth
