America's Top-Rated Smaller Cities

““The fact that this massive reference tool is now in its twelfth edition suggests its continuing value and importance despite the rise of various Internet sites and print publications attempting similar but less detailed rankings of various cities, states, and other geographical areas....

Grey House employs a “unique rating system” (p. xxv) to rank the cities with seventeen categories based primarily on population growth, income, housing affordability, crime rate, educational attainment, and unemployment.

...readers ranging from business executives and real estate developers to retirees seeking new homes and job seekers of all ages will find the search rewarding. This set is an essential purchase for all but the smallest public and academic libraries as well as business collections in special libraries.”-ARBA, 2019
