BALTIMORE (WJZ)— When it comes to a zombie apocalypse, Baltimore is the fourth strongest city to fend of the walking dead, according to a new study by CareerBuilder.

CareerBuilder ranked the 53 largest U.S. metropolitan areas on eight different factors in four categories:

  • Ability to defend against the virus
  • Ability to contain the virus
  • Ability to find a cure
  • Ability to outlast the epidemic with an ample food supply

The study is based on data from Emsi, CareerBuilder’s labor market analysis arm, which aggregates information from more than 100 national, state and local employment resources.

Boston, MA, Kansas City, MO, Salt Lake City, UT, Baltimore, MD, San Diego, CA, Seattle, WA, Denver, CO, Virginia Beach, VA, Hartford, CT and Minneapolis, MN round out the top 10 in the battle against the living dead.
