What do Americans under 35 look for in a place to live? According to Vocativ’s 2014 Livability Index: Good public transportation, great food, and excellent entertainment options. Portland nabbed the top spot in last year’s survey, but this year the winners are New York City (#1) and—surprise—a bunch of cities in Texas. How did your city stack up?
Last year around this time I reported on Vocativ’s first Livability Index, which qualified the best places for 35-and-unders to put down roots by examining highly specific data points like coffee shops per capita and the all-important price of an ounce of weed. Although there seems to be a “best places to live” ranking released every week, they aren’t really looking at the issues important to this particular age group, says Vocativ’s CEO Scott Cohen.
“We want to do this so we can speak to our demographic of people in their 20s and 30s,” he says. “We’ve gotten great feedback, from people saying thank you for your methodology, to those accusing us of having faulty methodology when their cities didn’t rank as they’d expect.”
That feedback from last year informed this year’s study. The team started out the same way, looking at the 100 largest cities in the U.S., then narrowing the list to a top 35 based on very specific criteria. But they made a few tweaks to the methodology, which might be why New York skyrocketed to the top of the list and Portland shuffled down to #10.
