Article Published 09/23/2014

Layton City is the 39th best city to live in for the United States, according to a new report from a financial news Web site: 247wallst.com.
This new ranking, released on Sept. 20, first identified the 550 cities that the U.S. Census Bureau reported as having more than 65,000 residents.
Then, the study collected statistics on those cities in seven categories: economy, crime, education, housing, leisure, variety and infrastructure.
Next, the study awarded points based on that data and listed the top 50 cities.
Only two other cities in Utah, besides Layton, were ranked.
Orem was 30th and West Jordan was 40th.
