Best Neighborhoods in America

Florida has some great spots to live. As it turns out, two of those areas are among the very best neighborhoods to live in America.

This is according to a new study reported by Niche. According to the publication, “The ‘Best Places to Live’ ranking provides a comprehensive assessment of the overall livability of an area. This grade takes into account several key factors of a location, including the quality of local schools, crime rates, housing trends, employment statistics, and access to amenities in an attempt to measure the overall quality of an area.” The two most important factors, according to the states on Niche.com’s website, are the higher education rate and the cost of living grade.”

Niche.com adds, “The same methodology is used to produce the Overall Niche Grade for each ranked place.” They also got statistics mainly from the U.S. Census, and those stats “represent the most recent data available.” What’s nice about this study is that they used actual numbers and facts, instead of just going by reviews or a vibe. They add that, “All Niche reviews and data are scored and standardized so that each place is comparable. We then assign each place to a cohort based on population and urban clustering.”
