Houston ranks as the best city to start over, according to a new study.

Houston ranks as the best city to start over, according to a new study.

The economy and jobs markets have forced many people across the country to rethink their chosen professions, and in some cases, start over. An analysis by The Daily Beast found that moving to a city such as Houston can gave people the best chance for success.

To determine the best relocation cities, the report looked at a number of economic factors, including the ease of finding a job, the average income level, quality of life and cost of living. In the end, Houston took the top spot in the study, based on its high personal income, low cost of living and strong support for small businesses.

After Houston, other cities listed as positive places for a relocation included Omaha, Nebraska; Dallas, Texas and Washington, D.C.

The nation's job market has continued to struggle in recent months, despite the slowly recovering economy. Statistics from the Department of Labor released today showed that the unemployment rate failed to improve in September, remaining at 9.6 percent as the economy lost approximately 95,000 jobs during the month.
