Washington, D.C., is the top city in the U.S. — at least, as far as work goes. For the third year in a row, it topped a ranking from Gallup as the best city for jobs among America’s 50th largest cities.

Part of the reason the nation’s capital is so good for jobs is the wealth of federal government employment. But that may change in 2017, according to the Gallup report. Since President Donald Trump moved to town, his administration has been warning of major federal job cuts.

Gallup, the market research firm that published the report, created the rankings on the Gallup Good Jobs metric. The GGJ rate, as it’s called, tracks the percent of American adults who work full time — that is, the number of people in the U.S. over 18 who work at least 30 hours a week.

Nationally, the GGJ rate was 45.5 percent in 2016. It rose from 44.8 percent the previous year, in line with data indicating lower unemployment rates over the past few years. In Washington, D.C., the GGJ rate was 54.6 percent in 2016. The Dallas-Fort Worth area, which was ranked number 10 on the list, had a GGJ rate of 50.4 percent.
