The City of Frederick Named in “Top 100 Places to Live”


Frederick, MD -- The City of Frederick has been named one of the “Top 100 Best Places to Live” by Livability.com, a national website that ranks quality of life amenities of America’s small and mid-sized cities.

To produce its inaugural list of “Top 100 Best Places to Live”, Livability.com partnered with Richard Florida’s Martin Prosperity Institute, the world's leading think tank on the role of location, place, and city-regions in global economic prosperity. Partnering in a study of more than 1,700 U.S. cities and the factors that make them the best places to live, work and play, The City of Frederick ranked #40 in the “Top 100 Best Places to Live”.

Mayor Randy McClement said, “This proves what we already know about our City; it is a great place to live, work and play. Citizens, local businesses and City staff work hard every day with the common goal to keep that a reality. We are very proud of this designation and the recognition this it so deservingly brings.”

The data collected for the ranking were weighted based on an exclusive survey conducted for Livability by Ipsos Public Affairs, a leading global market research firm. Respondents were asked about factors that make their communities better places to live, as well as the factors they would consider in selecting another city. Those factors were narrowed down to eight categories – economics, housing, amenities, infrastructure, demographics, social and civic capital, education and healthcare – that were used to determine each city’s LivScore. Frederick ranked particularly high in education and demographics.
