“The cities on this year’s list represent the best of the best when it comes to affordability and opportunity,” says Editor-in-Chief Winona Dimeo-Ediger. “These 100 cities are not just fantastic places to live in terms of their amenities, education, health care, and infrastructure, they are places where young people can build amazing careers and communities.”

To create the list of the top 100, Livability analyzed over 1,000 cities based on social and civic capital, demographics, economics, education, healthcare, housing, and infrastructure, and amenities.
