It drop's off really fast once you have Texas and California on the list. Arizona (Phoenix), the washington DC Area (if you can get a security clearance) are other locations. What specifically are you interested in
I'm primarily going on anecdotal evidence in the RFIC market, no statistics.
The only real statistic that's of interest is can you find a job where you want to live. I've been happy with www.indeed.com. They scrape a bunch of job sites, and aggregate the data. You can get an rss feed, as well.
why did you rule out CA and TX?
Those 2 are still the best choice. But if you insist, MA (like ADI,...) is the next best. Otherwise, AZ, the next. Well, NY and NJ might be next. Maybe there are some chances in WA.
