Remember game show host Richard Dawson (Google him, if not)? “Survey says” is a line he made famous on the popular TV show “Family Feud” which debuted 41 years ago. The program is still striking a positive chord these decades later, as is the City of Plano. The WalletHub survey says, “Plano is a great place for everyone…especially families.” The numbers tell the story!
“Is the area conducive to economic prosperity and the overall pursuit of happiness?” This was the key factor WalletHub examined in the study of the 150 most populated cities. It turns out Plano has excellent “WalletFitness™.” The research indicates families here, mostly, have made money (a stress issue) into a strength.
All total, 41 factors were reviewed in compiling the 2017 list (i.e. affordability, education, child care, health and safety, family activities, family income, divorce rate, etc.). Overland Park, KS (a suburb of Kansas City) took the top spot, while Birmingham, AL was named worst place to raise a family.
