Fairfield County Ranks Among Best Places To Live In Connecticut.


The November 2011 issue of Connecticut Magazine has just published “Rating the Towns 2011” for the state. Many of Fairfield County’s towns have ranked high in the list, with Greenwich, Westport, Ridgefield and Weston leading the way in their groups. Many other Fairfield towns are in the top five such as Darien, New Canaan, Wilton, Stamford and Danbury. The ratings are on five criteria:

  1. Education ~ based on five elements such as test scores, SAT’s and high school graduates who continued education.
  2. Economy ~ took into factor local economy factors such as unemployment rate & per capita income.
  3. Cost of Living ~ most weight was on median price of a single family home.
  4. Crime ~ based on major crimes figures from the states Department of Public Safety.
  5. Leisure & Culture ~ includes Library expenditures, number of theaters, museums, festivals, concerts venues, historic sites, colleges & universities, golf courses, state parks, voter turnout, restaurant ratings, and local newspapers.

The towns that are rated are broken into four groups based on population:

  • Towns with population over 50,000.
  • 25,000 to 50,000 populations.
  • 15,000 to 25,000 populations.
