And where might DC rank on their revered list?
Ranking: 27 out of 100
+ Below-average rates of depression
+ Among the top five areas for rates of women getting Pap smears
+ Among the top five scores for dental health
- Among the 10 highest rates of sexually transmitted diseases
- Longer-than-average commute of 72 minutes a day
- Among the 10 highest rates of asthma on list
At 5 million and long commuting, they’re including the suburbs, which is a wonderful counter balance to the STD rate numbers. But I’m still disappointed that we’re 27th.
I’d tell you who was ahead of us, but the web database only goes by places, not ranking. Bummer. I wonder where is the “best” according to Self?
