WESTFIELD, NJ — In its “Best and Worst Small Cities in America 2015” list, announced this week, WalletHub ranked Westfield No. 81 in the country. Westfield ranked No. 3 for “education and health” and No. 28 for “economic health.”
WalletHub calls itself a one-stop destination for all the tools and information consumers and small business owners need to make better financial decisions and save money.
To create this list, WalletHub said its analysts compared 1,268 U.S. cities with a population between 25,000 and 100,000.
“Inevitably, life in a small city demands some tradeoffs such as shorter business hours, a heavier reliance on cars and fewer dating opportunities,” WalletHub author Richie Bernardo wrote on WalletHub.com. “WalletHub’s analysts compared 1,268 small cities in the US to find the ones where residents don’t have to give up much. Our data set includes a total of 22 metrics, ranging from housing costs to school-system quality to the number of restaurants per capita.”
