Where you live has an impact on almost every aspect of your life.
While the U.S. is a rich, diverse country that has attracted people to its cities for centuries, not all of these cities are equal. Some are simply more livable than others.
For many Latinos, especially those from low-income families, they often have to live in areas that are high in poverty and crime and often lack access to safe physical activity spaces and healthy food options.
America’s Most Livable Cities + Latinos
In an effort to determine the “best” of these cities, the financial web site 24/7 Wall St. has created an index of the 50 best cities for Americans to live in.
What makes a city livable? Some of the factors considered by 24/7 Wall St. include crime rate, economy, and overall affordability.
According to the 24/7 Wall St.’s research, the best city in the United States to live in is Carmel, IN (3.52% Latino population). The city has an overall population 90,553 and the majority of the people who live there are “healthy, wealth, and well educated.” Nearly 70% of the adult population in Carmel has at least a bachelor’s degree.
Rounding out the top five on the list are:
- Centennial, CO (7.64% Latino)
- Arvada, CO (14.45%)
- Johns Creek, GA (12.14%)
- Highlands Ranch, CO (7.72%)
