Niche has issued its 2023 best places to live list, notably bestowing bragging rights to two Montgomery County communities among its top five.
This year’s evaluation is the ninth one compiled by Niche. Its analysis encompassed 228 cities and 17,932 towns.
Its analysts arrived at their assessments by crunching numbers from:
- The U.S. Census Bureau
- The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
- The Bureau of Labor Statistics
