Using quarterly-updated statistics from dozens of sources, BestPlaces.net is a free resource for people across the country seeking to relocate. The site is also used as a recreational learning tool and academic reference.
For over twenty years, Bert Sperling has been analyzing data about people and places, and rating them for major publications.
In 1985, Bert Sperling developed a software program named “Places, U.S.A.” which allowed people to enter their personal preferences to find their own best place. BestPlaces.net is a natural extension of our work over the last fifteen years regarding demographics, preferences, and the selection of “Best Places” to live, work, or retire.
Sperling’s concepts and methodology have been the basis of numerous studies since 1985. Today, Fast Forward, Inc. (the producer of BestPlaces.net) is responsible for more “Best Places” studies and projects than any other single organization.
