DENVER — Millennials represent the largest segment of the U.S. workforce, and as these young professionals access where they might want to build a career and a life away from the office, a number of factors can shape their decisions.
> The video above aired on Nov. 9 about a high rate of millennials own their own businesses.
A ranking from Pittsburgh-based research group Niche looked at the most recently available information across a number of categories and has produced what Niche calls the Best Cities for Young Professionals in America. Among the factors considered in the ranking are local public schools, crime, housing, nightlife, diversity, jobs, weather, cost of living, outdoor activities and commuting.
Denver and Boulder are both on the list.
Grades ultimately are assigned based on how statistics from one city compare to others in the ranking. Sources used to compile the information include the FBI, Department of Education, U.S. Census and Brookings Institution.
