A new Brookings Institute report describes a slow, uneven recovery in the country's 100 biggest metro areas.

It's another downer for us. The individual rankings put the Little Rock-North Little Rock-Conway area at 100th on the list. 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.
