Atlanta's Livability: Slightly Better Than Average!

New, 4 comments

Take that, Miami and Houston! Atlanta's a slightly better mediocre city than you! Or so says personal finance website WalletHub, which today released their in-depth analysis "2015's Best & Worst Large Cities to Live in." Using 31 metrics to compare the largest U.S. cities in terms of livability, the quality of health and education systems, economic growth and tax rates, WalletHub pegs Atlanta at middle-of-the-pack No. 27, between Corpus Christi and Kansas City, which happen to rhyme. Millennial darling Austin took the top spot, with Memphis and Detroit representing the rock bottom, respectively, of 62 cities analyzed. Surprisingly, Atlanta's education and health rating is far better, in WalletHub's eyes, than the city's general livability ranking.
