September 13, 2018 By Staff Reports

Fayetteville was named the fifth-best place to live in the United States by U.S. News & World Report, the global authority for rankings and consumer advice. The list ranks the country’s 100 largest metropolitan areas based on affordability, job prospects, and quality of life.

Coming in at the top of the list is Austin, Texas; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Denver, Colo.; and Des Moines, Iowa.

The 2018 Best Places to Live were determined in part by a public survey of thousands of individuals across the U.S. to find out what qualities they consider important in a hometown.

The study analyzed survey responses from 3,000 people as well as data collected from the U.S. Census, the Gallup- Healthways Well-Being Index, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the FBI Uniform Crime Report and other U.S. News rankings, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas attract a wide variety of residents moving into the area for work, retirement or to experience Ozark trails, lakes, mountains, outdoor and cultural amenities.
