BusinessWeek magazine in its November 10 edition named Marietta one of the top two best places to raise children in Georgia among towns with at least 50,000 residents and an average family income between $40,000 and $100,000.
How Marietta was chosen
Marietta was chosen based on criteria including school performance, number of schools, household expenditures, crime rates, air quality, job growth, family income, museums, parks, theaters and other amenities, and diversity.
BusinessWeek placed more weight on school performance and safety, but also gave strong weight to amenities and affordability.
