They ranked towns and cities based on the following 7 criteria:

  • Total amenities
  • Quality of life (cost of living, median home price, median rent, median household income, and student-teacher ratio)
  • Total crimes
  • Tax rates (sales tax and income tax)
  • Unemployment
  • Commute time
  • Weather (temperature and air quality)
