Looking to move? Well, you’re in luck. The U.S. News & World Report released their 20201 Best Places to Live list, ranking the 150 most populated metro areas across the nation.
To make the list, the area had to be of good value, have a strong job market, be of good value, and have a high quality of life.
“U.S. News & World Report’s Best Places to Live rankings are intended to help readers make the most informed decision when choosing where to settle down. Metro areas in the rankings are evaluated using data from trusted sources, including the U.S. Census Bureau, the FBI, the U.S. Department of Labor and U.S. News’ own internal resources. This data was categorized into the five indexes listed below and then evaluated using a methodology determined by Americans’ preferences. The percent weighting for each index follows the answers from a public survey in August 2020 in which people from across the country voted for what they believed was the most important factor to consider when choosing where to live.” (Read more here)
