In the Best Places to Live in the US in 2019, Austin Tops the List
In their annual list of the best metro areas in the United States, analyst and online news firm US News has just announced their 2019 findings. Analyzing 125 of the most populous locations in the nation, the firm looked across categories of affordability, desirability, workforce opportunities and overall quality of life. To report their findings, sources of data were collected from public agencies including the US Census Bureau and Department of Labor which were referenced to drill down the factors of a successful local economy including job markets, housing affordability and availability as well as quality of education. To collect another perspective, the firm also utilized public polling to understand where individuals across the country would choose to live to further pinpoint desirability of each city in the running.
