9780062731340: The Livable Cities Almanac
From Library Journal:

For those who have the opportunity to choose where to live and work, this reference ranks more than 100 metropolitan areas based on a compilation of federal and local government data similar to The Places Rated Almanac ( LJ 3/15/82). However, Marlin offers a fresh approach by focusing exclusively on health and environmental factors as the measure of livability; he compares air and water quality, disease and mortality rates, availability of health and recreational services, public safety or crime rates, economic health factors, and school-health educational services. Packed with a surprising amount of scientific information, the book's eight chapters provide well-written, easy-to-understand discussions of the criteria for creating a healthy urban area. Evaluations are arranged alphabetically by metropolitan area and include a pictorial rating system and succinct supporting statistical evidence and explanations. Recommended as a thorough, timely addition to the literature.
