Here Are The 10 Best Cities In Oklahoma To Raise A Family

We can all agree, Oklahoma has more than 10 cities that are great for raising a family. However, we wanted to highlight a study done by NerdWallet that put together a list of the state’s best towns to live for families. With that in mind, they asked the following questions as they analyzed cities and towns across the state: “Does the town have good public schools?”; “Can you afford to live there?”; and “Is the town growing and prospering?”

The overall score for each city was derived from the following measures: GreatSchools city rating, median home value from the 2011 U.S. Census, monthly homeowner costs from the 2011 U.S. Census, median household income from the 2011 U.S. Census, and income change between 1999 and 2011 from the U.S. Census. Only places with a population greater than 5,000 were considered. According to NerdWallet’s data, these are the 10 best cities in Oklahoma to raise a family:

Do you agree with this list?  If not, what cities do you think are the best for raising kids and why?
