Saturday Stats: Santa Clara County is One of the 10 Best in California

This week's Saturday stat is for our county. Movoto looked at all 58 counties in California in order to determine where the best places to live would be. Here are the criteria that went into the rankings:

  • Unemployment rate (the lower the better)
  • Median household income (the higher the better)
  • Median rent (the higher the better, to indicate area’s desirability)
  • Median home price (the higher the better, to indicate desirability)
  • Percent of families below the poverty line (the lower the better)
  • High school graduation rate (the higher the better)
  • Average Commute Time (the lower the better)

Santa Clara county took #3. Half of the places on the list were in the Bay Area; SF came in at the bottom of the top 10.
