NerdWallet, an organization that keeps statistics on metropolitan areas, says that Chula Vista is the 12th best city in the nation in which working parents can raise children. The study was done in conjunction with the publication Business Insider.
The criteria were monthly housing costs, median household income, child-care affordability, quality of schools, and percentage of households with children.
Chula Vista got its high ranking despite high monthly homeowner costs and high cost of child care. In Chula Vista, 77.4 percent of households have children, which was on the high side.
San Diego came in 56th out of 100 metro areas.
