Westfield Named #2 City in Indiana to Raise a Family

For the second year in a row, The Consumer Advocacy site, NerdWallet,  conducted a study analyzing the best cities to raise a family.  Analyzing 109 cities in Indiana with 5,000 plus residents,  four major factors were considered when crunching the data:

  • Home affordability
  • Prosperity and Growth
  • Quality of education
  • Family friendliness

The study revealed Westfield has the highest percentage of families with children in the state, and revealed these trends about Indiana:

  • Capital communities – seven of the ten top cities in Indiana were around Indianapolis.
  • Home values are high – In Indiana the high quality of life offsets higher housing prices.
  • Larger cities dominate – Often in Midwest communities, smaller cities are best for young families.  But in Indiana, the average population for the top 10 is 32,000.
