HomeSnacks recently released its rankings of the top 10 best places to live in Indiana for the fifth time, and Westfield placed sixth.
Three Hamilton County cities made the list. Zionsville topped the list, followed by Carmel. St. John ranked third, followed by Dyer and Noblesville. Westfield was right behind Noblesville.
To create the rankings, HomeSnacks created three tiers – cities with populations of more than 5,000, towns with populations between 1,000 and 5,000 and small towns with populations below 1,000. Within those tiers, HomeSnacks evaluated 112 cities, 213 towns and 301 small towns.
HomeSnacks judged cities and towns on several criterion, including median home values, median income, population density, unemployment rate, commute time, crime, education levels, health insurance coverage and poverty.
Westfield rose one spot last year’s rank. Its median home value is $226,000 with an unemployment rate of 2.9 percent. Out of all the criteria, Westfield ranked highest in education and lowest in diversity.
HomeSnacks noted Westfield residents have a median income of $89,144 and average rent valued at $1,162.
