Best major cities to live in
Samuel Stebbins and Grant Suneson 24/7 Wall Street Published 6:00 AM EST Jan 4, 2019 There are nearly 20,000 villages, towns and cities across the 50 states, and not all of them are equally conducive to the well-being of those who live there. While quality of life is subject to a range of factors – close relationships and personal health being among the most important – the local community and environment can also have a meaningful impact. When it comes to choosing a place to call home, everyone has their own priorities and subjective tastes. Still, there are specific attributes some communities share that are almost universally desirable: safe streets, a strong economy, affordability and a range of entertainment options, to name a few. 24/7 Wall St. created a weighted index of over two dozen measures to identify the best city to live in each state. We considered all boroughs, census designated places, cities, towns and villages with at least … [Read more...] about Best cities to live in every state in the US for quality of life
Sunderland has been rated as the best UK city to live and work in - based on factors including housing, travel, jobs and crime. A survey of 2,000 people from across the UK saw Sunderland named as the nation’s favourite place to live, while Newcastle was named as one of the worst. The research, conducted by finance firm OneFamily, ranked cities based on aspects such as average salary, rent, property prices and commuting costs.

Samuel Stebbins, Grant Suneson and Michael B. Sauter 24/7 Wall Street Published 7:30 AM EDT Oct 22, 2018 There are nearly 20,000 villages, towns, and cities, across the nearly 3.8 million square miles that comprise the United States. More than 1-in-10 Americans move each year, and suffice it to say, when it comes to choosing a place to settle down, they have options. For many, deciding on a place to call home is influenced by subjective or personal variables like climate, proximity to friends and family, or a job opportunity. For those with greater flexibility, however, there are dozens of objective factors to consider, as overall quality of life can vary considerably from town to town and city to city. In an ideal community, the streets are safe and those who want a job have little difficulty finding one. An ideal city is also an affordable one, a place where residents can keep more of their disposable income. A range of transportation options and easy access to entertainment … [Read more...] about What are the best cities to live in? These 50 top the list in the US
Samuel Stebbins, Grant Suneson and Evan Comen 24/7 Wall Street Published 8:48 AM EDT Oct 5, 2018 For those with the luxury of being able to decide where to live, choosing a city to call home is a largely personal decision. Proximity to friends and family, climate, and other personal and subjective factors are common reasons Americans choose to relocate. They are not, however, the only determinants of quality of life. In any American city, a high crime rate, risk of natural disaster, and widespread poverty can detract from overall quality of life. Similarly, low unemployment, a high concentration of entertainment and cultural attractions, and affordable housing can enhance quality of life. To identify the worst city to live in every state, 24/7 Wall Street created an index of 37 such measures in eight major categories: crime, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure and leisure. Because we are only comparing cities with others in the same state, … [Read more...] about Worst cities to live in 2018: A list of the top one in each state
