US News & World Report: El Paso #9 in the Nation for Quality of Life

El Paso has recently been named among the top 10 places to live in the United States for quality of life. According to a list of rankings from U.S. News & World Report, the Sun City is ranked 9th when it comes to quality of life.

U.S. News surveyed people across the country about what matters most when determining where they want to live. From the information gathered in the survey, rankings were compiled based on several factors like crime rates, quality and availability of health care, quality of education, well-being and average commute time.

“It is always great to see when others outside of our community acknowledge just how great El Paso truly is,” said El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser. “El Paso is an amazing city with a lot of great qualities and now people across the country are realizing that El Paso is not only a safe city, but a prosperous city with so much to offer.”

The report describes El Paso as “one of the safest metro areas in the country.” The only other Texas city to make it in the top 10 is McAllen.
