There’s a lot to like about living in Pittsburgh. And that is coming straight from the experts.

Livability.com, a website that annually evaluates cities with populations between 20,000 and 350,000, has placed Pittsburgh in the Top 100 Best Places to Live for 2017. To be exact, we come in at No. 19, finishing in a statistical tie with Arlington, Va.

“Our website showcases small to mid-size cities and looks at why these places are great places to live, and why people should invest in these places and move to these places,” Livability spokeswoman Becky Henson said Monday. “We look at how people enjoy a different quality of life outside of major metro areas.”

This is the fourth time Livability and its partners — researchers at The Initiative for Creativity and Innovation in Cities at New York University’s Schools of Professional Studies — have produced the rankings, painstakingly grading more than 2,100 cities on 40 different data points. The eight categories they look at are economics, housing, amenities, infrastructure, demographics, social and civic capital, education and health care.
