Two Area Cities Rank in the Top 10 “Best Cities to Live In Texas” by NerdWallet
Posted In: League City News | Pearland News Posted by Pam Moore on 07/07/2015

Consumer Advocacy site NerdWallet released their newest report, “Best Cities to Live in Texas”, in their Finance Section on June 15, 2015. This nationwide study ranked two Bay Area cities in the Top 10 Cities; Pearland ranked #6, and League City ranked number #8.

…“Indeed, the largest state in the continental U.S. not only trumps others in land mass, but it is also No. 2 in the nation when it comes to population and population growth. And in the biggest state, growth is happening in the biggest cities.

According to a report about the most recent U.S Census Bureau estimates, seven of the 15 fastest-growing cities with populations of 50,000 or more are located in Texas. The state, which saw an overall population growth rate of 5.4% from 2010 to 2013, is seeing growth spikes as high as 9.2% in Austin, as millennials continue to flock to cities.

In a state overflowing with pride, the question of a “best city” is an area of debate. Looking at a variety of data sources, NerdWallet ranked the 50 largest cities in Texas on quality-of-life indicators to determine the best places to live.”…

NerdWallet used the following “Quality of Life” indicators for scoring in their report: Crime Data=30%; Education=20%; Housing/Demographics=40% and Walk Score=10%. To see the full report, visit the NerdWallet website.
