Flower Mound ranked as best place to live in Texas
Chamber of Commerce, a digital resource for small business owners, recently evaluated 2,509 Texas cities and ranked the top 100 best in which to live.
The five factors used to build the list included employment (number of establishments, median earnings); housing (owner-occupied housing with a mortgage, monthly housing costs); quality of life (work commute, poverty levels); education (percentage with a bachelor’s degree or higher); and health (obesity ratios). Only cities with a population above 25,000 and enough data for analysis were considered.
The top spot went to Flower Mound, the affluent Dallas and Fort Worth suburb. As the ranking notes, “Flo Mo” boasts a strong economy driven by its retail sector and the introduction of light industry in recent years. A large percentage of its population is originally from outside the state.
