If zombies ever become a reality, Boston is the place we all want to be.
Based on occupational skill sets and industry resources, an index created by CareerBuilder and EMSI shows chances of survival in major metro areas. The worst place to be?
The Zombie Apocalypse Index research ranks 53 of the largest metropolitan areas within the U.S. Those are areas that have populations of 1 million or higher.
"A standard, flesh-eating virus transmitted via biting or contact with infected blood is assumed," said a release about the index. "The index is scored on eight different factors in four categories: ability to defend against the virus, ability to contain the virus, ability to find a cure and ability to outlast the epidemic with an ample food supply."
