WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains was recently ranked the 67th-most livable "small to midsize city" in the U.S. by livability.com

Livability.com's list consisted of more than 2,000 cities with populations ranging from 20,000 to 350,000. Those cities were then ranked by the following criteria:

  • Amenities
  • Demographics
  • Economy
  • Education
  • Health care
  • Housing
  • Social and civic capital
  • Transportation

Each category was then given a weighted score. The eight categories were then combined to give each city a total livability score.

White Plains received a total livability score of 622. The city excelled in several categories, including demographics, amenities, transportation, and social and civic capital.

White Plains only struggled in one category, netting a low rating in the economy category, which factors in cost of living and affordability.

Madison, Wis., was rated the top overall city with a total livability score of 705.
