Predicting Singles’ Satisfaction in 100 U.S. Cities
The Latest Rankings from Worldwide ERC and Primacy Relocation
®
2007 City Ranking
Primacy Relocation, Worldwide ERC, and Sperling’s BestPlaces
have collaborated for a fourth year to identify cities with the most
to offer relocating singles. The study combines statistical profiles
of the largest 100 U.S. metro areas with the quality-of-life
priorities of unmarried professionals – criteria that directly impact
the success of a professional relocation.
The 2007 report incorporates new U.S. Census Bureau data and
reflects an increased emphasis on rent costs and job growth.
New categories this year include:
• A robust cost-of-living index
• Adventure and outdoor recreation opportunities
• Violent crime and property crime rates
Traditional criteria include:
• Percentage of the population that is unmarried
(ages 25-34)
• Ratio of single men and single women
• Affordability of quality higher education, including
in-state and out-of-state tuition requirements and rates
• Number of newcomers to the area
• Commute times
• Tax rates
• Fee and occupancy rates for temporary housing
and mini-storage
• Quality and quantity of collegiate and professional
sporting events and fun, fan-friendly venues
The livability of a city is different, depending on an individual’s
point of view. This comprehensive “Best Cities for Relocating
Singles” study provides employee relocation professionals with
another tool to help facilitate a happy and successful move.
