Politicians and Chamber of Commerce folks love to tout how Atlanta has become a leading force in the tech sector. But according to a recently-released CB Richard Ellis survey, they’re not just creating spin. They’re right.

Between 2013 and 2018, Atlanta added nearly 32,000 tech jobs. In the U.S., only San Francisco had a stronger showing.
