The answers to all these questions and more are found in "Best Places to Raise an LDS Family." This is the first and only book to evaluate, rate, and rank communities in seven broad categories from a Latter-day Saint perspective: LDS Culture (including ratio of positive to negative establishments, commute times, proximity to LDS temples, proximity to major LDS historical sites, ratio of stay-at-home moms, etc.), Education (graduation rates, educational attainment, school environment), Crime (property crime and violent crime), Health (smoking rates, alcohol consumption, teen and adult smoking and drinking rates, teen sexual activity, exercise, obesity, teen and adult STD rates, drug use, etc.), Economic Environment (unemployment, tax rates, family income, poverty, etc.), Household Characteristics (families with children, unmarried partners, number of children, etc.), and Housing (ratio of renters to owners, median home value, median home price and age, price of four-bedroom homes, etc.). This first-of-its-kind volume is an invaluable resource for all Latter-day Saints as they consider where to raise their families.
