If you’ve been planning to potentially relocate to a new city, you may want to read the results of a recent study done by City Lab. The study measured livability for Black women in cities across the country, where there were at least 100,000 Black women already living.

Several factors were taken into consideration: income status, health conditions, and educational accomplishment of Black women in the tested areas. The entire metro areas were factored in versus the true city proper. Some of the results may surprise you.
