Pinecrest, Key Biscayne, Parkland, Coral Gables and Weston are among the 10 best places in Florida when it comes to quality of life, according to a new On Numbers analysis by The Business Journals.
The 20-part rating formula includes strong economic bases, housing stocks and effective educational systems.
No major city factored in the top 10 of the index for Florida. Weston, with a population of 64,148, was the largest city.
Pinecrest, which ranked second statewide behind Central Florida's Lake Butler, has a median household income of $107,756 and a 2.34 percent unemployment rate for those ages 25 to 64. The median housing value is $827,200.
Nearly all of the adults in the city (97.13 percent) have a high school degree, while more than two-thirds (67.04 percent) have a bachelor's degree and a one-third (33.59 percent) have an advanced degree.
