“According to the United States Census,” Kolmar started, “the number of American families who move is trending downwards Why is that? Perhaps it has to do with the ‘safety net’ factor: We get comfortable where we live, and we’re afraid to try a new move. What if the schools are bad? What if it’s dangerous?”

Following these rhetorical questions, he later in the blogpost explained more exactly how they compile the annual Best Places to Raise a Family in NC, saying, “We threw a lot of criteria at this one in order to get the best, most complete results possible.” Kolmar continued, “Using U.S. Census data produced for the state of North Carolina, we looked at every single city in the state. We paid particular attention to:

  • Crime (Both violent and property)
  • Quality of local schools
  • Distance to a major city without necessarily being in it
  • % of households with children
  • Family-friendly amenities nearby (museums, libraries and colleges)

Utilizing all of the information explained above, the experts at HomeSnacks then give each of the 60 municipalities a “family score,” whereas, obviously, the higher the score the higher the ranking on the final list of Best Places to Raise a Family in NC.
