Three San Antonio area communities are among the 'Ten Most Successful Cities in Texas' in a ranking done by the career web site Zippia.com, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Zippia says it used three key factors, a high household income, low unemployment and a low poverty rate to decide what are the most successful cities, on the logic that the most successful cities are the ones where the most people are successful.
Using its criteria, Fair Oaks Ranch is the fourth most 'successful' city in Texas and the most successful of three in the Sna Antonio area that made the Top Ten in Zippia's rankings
.Zippia cites the northwest side suburb for its median annual household income of $132,000, its almost non existent poverty rate of 0.5% of the community, and an unemployment rate of 4.1%, which is about the same as Bexar County as a whole.
The seventh 'most successful' community in the state is Helotes.
And, ranking tenth in the state, with literally zero unemployment on top of an average household income of $127,000 is Terrell Hills.
Zippia says the number one Most Successful City in Texas is the super exclusive Dallas area enclave of West University Park, where the median household income tops $200,000 a year. Number two is the west Houston suburb of Bellaire, followed by Trophy Club, a golf course community near Ft. Worth.
