Ranked 45th in terms of metropolitan areas with the lowest unemployment, Madison, Wisconsin, has a relatively vibrant local economy with an unemployment rate hovering near 4 percent as of May 2014.

Construction is also experiencing growth, especially in skilled construction trades. Among the fastest growing sectors are health, biotechnology, and advertising, with growth in government positions beginning to stagnate somewhat, although the local, state and federal governments continue to be important employers. The University of Wisconsin - Madison is located here and employed 21,727 faculty and staff as of March 2014, making it one of the largest employers. Software developer jobs and software programmer jobs are becoming popular to big companies such as Epic System, a company specializing in electronic health records.

The cost of living in Madison can be surprisingly high to newcomers, especially the property tax rate and the cost of housing.
