Accoding to ForbesWoman, the Twin Cities is the #1 place to live for working Moms.
When calculating the list, Forbes began woth different qualities that are cinsidered to be important. This list includes safety, health care, schools and quality of life. However, the folks over at Forbes took an even deeper look at other important issues such as: job opportunities, high earnings potential and a budget-friendly cost of living.
"So how did New York, last year's No. 1 city for working mothers, get displaced by unassuming Minneapolis? This year we placed greater emphasis on women's earnings, which we think play a major role in the best cities for women to work and raise children.
And at only 216 crimes per 100,000 residents annually, Minneapolis has the lowest violent crime rate, which means there are fewer murders, rapes, robberies and assaults than any other major U.S. city, as well as the second-lowest unemployment rate at 6.4 percent."
Other Cities that top the list?
1.) Minneapolis, MN
2.) Washington, D.C.
3.) Boston, Mass
4.) Pittsburgh, PA
