The cities were chosen based on some of the top aspects that make a city a great place to be, such as economic opportunity, good schools, safe streets, things to do and a sense of community.

The cities were also ranked based on ethnic and racial diversity. Median home prices and average property taxes have also been taken into consideration this time around, which means, expensive locales that had scored well before have gone down in the listing.
