MONEY only looked at places in the US with populations of 50,000 or more. Those that had more than double the national crime risk, less than 85% of the state's median household income, or a lack of ethnic diversity were eliminated. That narrowed the list down to 1,796 places to be evaluated. Using around 160,000 data points, MONEY was able to then shorten that list to the final ranking, which includes 100 places and can be viewed here.From Denver's oldest neighborhood to the birthplace of Walmart, here are the top 25 places to live in America, ranked.
