Last November 2015, the Wall Street Journal published the results of a study called – America’s 50 Best Cities to Live.
To select the top cities, they used U.S. Census Bureau data focused on nine major categories: crime, demography, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure, and leisure.
In this Blog Series, we will share with you the Top 10 Cities from this study.
