For the second year in a row, Austin has ranked #1 on the U.S. News & World Report list of 2018 Best Places to Live in the United States.
To come up with the annual report, U.S. News surveys people across the country about what's important to them, and incorporates data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the FBI, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as well as rankings of the best high schools and hospitals.
"U.S. News created the Best Places to Live to highlight areas across the country that have the characteristics residents are looking for, including steady job growth and affordability," said Kim Castro, executive editor at U.S. News. "The top-ranked places are areas where citizens can feel the most fulfilled socially, physically and financially."
