On average, yes. I'm not sure if that's still true if you're looking only at gross numbers.

Basically, Charlotte is starting to have big-city problems and the Triangle isn't. Average income, education and growth rates are harder to sustain as a city gets larger. I don't see the Triangle making any particular effort to stimulate the kind of out-of-control growth that Charlotte experienced in the 1990s and 2000s, which resulted in some very cool amenities along with some very serious community issues.
