Raleigh is Among the Best Cities in America to Live

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 15, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighDid you know that in 2017 North Carolina’s two largest cities were named among the best cities in America to live.

In an analysis of nearly 600 U.S. cities with populations of more than 65,000, finance website 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data in nine major categories: crime, demography, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure and leisure.

Raleigh was ranked No. 10 in America.

For 2017, Raleigh was listed with a population of 458,862, a median home value of $242,500, a poverty rate of 12.1 percent (putting the city in the bottom 25 percent), and the percentage of people with at least a bachelor’s degree at 50.8 percent (putting Raleigh in the top 10 percent of cities).

Raleigh is one of many fast-growing mid-size cities in North Carolina. Over the past 10 years, the population of Raleigh increased by 29.6 percent, the most of any city in the state other than neighboring Cary, and far more than the 7.1 percent national population growth rate.

Raleigh is located in the southeastern corner of the Research Triangle, a prospering area with three leading research universities and many high-tech companies. Raleigh itself is home to North Carolina State University and is a 30-minute drive from Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

North Carolina has one of the largest brain gains – more college graduates are staying in the state than leaving – in the country. This has contributed to high educational attainment in cities across the state. In Raleigh, 50.8 percent of adults have at least a bachelor’s degree, far more than the 31.3 percent national share.

The website used census data, the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, Bureau of Labor statistics, school test score data, Department of Education statistics, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services data and more to determine the rankings.
