Roseville's economic strength earns city national ranking

Updated December 08, 2022
Roseville has been named eighteenth among the top 100 economic growth cities in America in a recent study by SmartAsset. 

Strong business and housing growth fueled Roseville’s ranking. During the last five years, the community saw more than 12 percent growth in the number of businesses, 14 percent rise in population, and 18 percent increase in much needed housing units.

“Roseville continues to be recognized as one of the best places to live and do business in California. Affordable and reliable community-owned utilities, innovation, safety and livability make Roseville a community of choice for investment,” said Melissa Anguiano, Roseville Economic Development Director. 

The City of Roseville takes a thoughtful approach to planning for growth. A comprehensive look at land use accounts for the city’s needs and plans for the right balance of residential, commercial, office, and industrial land. It also examines parks, open space, and other municipal operations like utilities, traffic and public safety. This planning ensures economic health and that future city services are available as the population grows.

Because Roseville is a full-service city, effective coordination of these services and infrastructure happen more easily than many other communities. These efforts help fuel a healthy economic environment and create a place where residents and businesses invest in the future.

SmartAsset analyzed data for 494 of the largest cities across topics measuring growth of the population, income, GDP, businesses, housing and changes in unemployment.
