Fortune Well started the Fortune 50 Best Places to Live for Families ranking last year aiming to help movers to have a sense of where they may be most likely to thrive. This March, a Harris poll conducted on behalf of Fortune found that nearly half of Americans plan to move within the next two years. With more Americans looking to relocate, this ranking analyzes each city's education, aging resources, general wellness, financial health and livability, providing movers with an accurate starting point in their relocation journey.
