Thinking about moving somewhere? Not sure where yet?
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.
#7: Goodyear, Arizona
> Population: 75,676
> Median home value: $243,000
> Poverty rate: 12.1%
> Pct. with at least a bachelor’s degree: 24.8%
> Amenities per 100,000 residents: 211.4
The typical household in Goodyear earns roughly $70,000 annually, nearly $20,000 higher than the median household income across Arizona. Goodyear also has a lower poverty rate. While 18.2% of Arizona residents live in poverty, only 12.1% of Goodyear residents live in poverty. Goodyear is also a relatively safe place. With 132 incidences of violent crime per 100,000 residents annually, the city’s violent crime rate is less than half that of the state a whole.
In Goodyear, weather is usually favorable for outdoor activities. Average temperatures stay over 50 degrees in the winter months and hover just above 90 degrees through the summer. It is perhaps no coincidence that no other part of the country has a higher count of golf courses relative to the population.
