2023 Marks Livability.com’s 10th Year Celebrating the BEST PLACES TO LIVE IN AMERICA

Utilizing the Most Accurate City Data Available

At Livability, we’re experts on our nation’s small to mid-size cities and what makes them great places to live. Our research has consistently shown that people want affordability and places where their families and careers can grow. For the past decade, we’ve put our expertise and our relocation insights to work to find the best small to mid-size cities in the United States with an annual Top 100 list.

Each year, the results are the culmination of months of extensive research into relocation trends, economic variables and factors that influence quality of life. The 2023 Top 100 Best Places To Live list considers nearly 100 of the most recent, carefully selected data points available, including the same important data points as previous years, relevant one- and five-year projection data, new interactive filters and much more — to produce our most interesting and dynamic list to date. 

Livability.com has partnered with world-renowned data scientists at Applied Geographic Solutions (AGS) this year to collect, formulate and project the 2023 list of best places to live. We examined more than 2,200 cities based on nearly 100 data points grouped into eight categories, measuring a city’s economic stability, housing, amenities, infrastructure, demographics, social and civic capital and health care. Using scores from all eight measures, we calculated each city’s LivScore to determine the Top 100 Best Places To Live in America.

Be sure to come back on June 13, 2023, to find your new, best place to live. In the meantime, check out our 2022 list of the Top 100 Places To Live in the U.S.
