rankings-walkablemidwestneighborhoods_1280x960-insourcerMore than ever, quality-of-life considerations are driving location decisions, both for businesses and for people seeking to maximize their potential. Given this, where companies are located has become as important a factor in their success as the products or services they offer.

Luckily, quality of life in Wisconsin’s communities, and throughout the state, is consistently ranked highly on various indexes of business and lifestyle factors. The webpage collects these rankings in one place, making it easy to see how Wisconsin stacks up.

From health care quality and the family friendliness of its cities to the strength of its universities and colleges, Wisconsin performs well in a multitude of rankings. The webpage is continuously updated with new rankings: for example, the real estate brokerage company Redfin recently ranked two Wisconsin communities, downtown Madison and downtown Sheboygan, among the 10 most walkable neighborhoods in the Midwest. SmartAsset, a personal finance technology company, recently ranked Appleton among the 10 best places in the U.S. to raise children.

The individual rankings and accolades, taken together, paint the picture that Wisconsin residents already know but is important to share with others: The depth and the breadth of the state’s assets make Wisconsin an environment where people both excel professionally and thrive personally.
