Marin County Is Safest in Country
Well, one thing everyone wants to have when they move to a new home and community is personal safety for them and their children. In a new survey, Marin tops the list nationally!
An April survey found Bay Area residents were among the nation’s happiest. Now, a new study by U.S. News & World Report shows that our local counties also rank as among the healthiest for children.
The publication awarded Marin County a perfect score of 100 and a No.1 ranking, based on a combination of factors including low birth weight and poverty levels. San Francisco also cracked the top 10, coming in with a score of 91.5 to place sixth.
Eight of nine Bay Area counties ranked on the 50-county list, including San Mateo (No. 11), Santa Clara (No. 16), Sonoma (No. 36), Napa (No. 42), Alameda (No. 45), and Contra Costa (No. 47).
Not only is such a rank important for your own peace of mind, but it also is one of those "intangibles" that helps your home maintain its value.
