Six California metropolitan areas ranked in the top 50 on Forbes magazine’s 2010 list of the nation’s best cities for working mothers. They are:
No. 13: San Diego
No. 16: San Jose-Sunnyvale
No. 23: San Francisco
No. 28: Los Angeles
No. 32: Riverside-San Bernardino
No. 35: Sacramento
Forbes rated the cities against criteria that considered women’s income, cost of living, availability of pediatricians, safety, employment opportunities and spending on education.
San Diego and the Silicon Valley cities of San Jose and Sunnyvale scored especially well for good access to pediatric care, low crime rates and relatively high pay for women.
Minneapolis-St. Paul’s low crime and unemployment rates earned the Twin Cities region the magazine’s No. 1 ranking, followed by Washington, D.C., Boston, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
New York, last year’s winner, fell to eighth this year.
Sun Belt cities languished near the bottom of the survey, perhaps because they’ve been hard hit by the recession. Las Vegas finished last for the second straight year because of the city’s collapsed housing market and high unemployment and crime rates.
Florida metropolitan areas, along with Memphis, Tenn., and Charlotte, N.C., floundered near the bottom of Forbes’ list.
