Orem ranked best city for working parents

SmartAsset, a personal finance technology company headquartered in New York, has determined Orem as the best city for working parents for the second year in a row!
“With a low violent crime rate (43 crimes per 100,000 residents), Orem is one of the safest cities in our analysis. What’s more, the local high school graduation rate is high. On average, 95% of the city’s high school students earn their diplomas. Additionally, parents who need to work full-time to support their families can benefit from the city’s strong economic growth and development. Just 2.5% of the residents in Orem who are actively looking for work are unemployed.” (Dixon, 2017)

Layton, Utah was ranked number 3 and Provo, Utah was ranked number 5.
