Houston Business Journal ~ Several Houston suburbs have made the list of the Best Places for Young Families in Texas, according to NerdWallet.

According to numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Texas now ranks as the fastest-growing state for job growth, reports NerdWallet. However, jobs were not the only factor when deciding which areas ranked highest on the list. Good public schools, the price of homes and economic growth were also considered when amassing the list of which places in the state appealed most to young families.

Friendswood, Sugar Land, Pearland,League City, The Woodlands and Spring all made the top 20 in NerdWallet’s list with Sugar Land, Pearland and Friendswood all making the top 10.

Friendswood, which came in at No. 2, has the fourth-highest income growth rate in the state at almost 50 percent, and Sugar Land boasts the seventh-largest school district in the state helping the city land at No. 6 on the list. Coming in at No. 9 on the list, Pearland was recognized for participation in the Houston-based “No Place for Hate” initiative, which is a program aimed at making school safe for all students. League City, The Woodlands and Spring round out the Houston suburbs on the top 20 list coming in at No. 11, No. 12 and No. 20 respectively.
