About CitySlip

CitySlip is designed to help the user decide whether to move to a particular city in the U.S. CitySlip evaluates the city based on various criteria and provides a score between 0 and 100, the higher the better.

CitySlip computes a score based on the various variables. Weighting factors guide the calculations. For example, an affordable, pedestrian-friendly city with moderate temperatures and a low crime risk should yield a reasonably high score. Variables used to calculate the score are:

  • Average winter and summer temperatures
  • Affordability, based on recent home values, rentals, and market health index
  • Crime Risk
  • Walkability
  • Number of schools
  • Number of specific points of interest
  • Population growth
  • Average age of residents
  • Sales Tax
