Miami placed seventh-worst in a Brookings Institution study that ranks cities by how spread out their employment centers are. About 62% of Miami jobs are located more than 10 miles from the city center, meaning relatively more employees have to travel farther to get to and from work.

Areas where jobs are concentrated in city centers—Virginia Beach, Va., and New York City rated highest—have simpler commuting patterns and make it easier for planners to make good economic-development and land-use decisions.

The Brookings Institution report is titled “Job Sprawl Revisited: The Changing Geography of Metropolitan Employment.”
