Minneapolis-St. Paul’s low crime and unemployment rates nudged the Twin Cities past Washington, D.C., and Boston to gain the top spot on Forbes magazine’s best city for working mothers list.

The survey weighed women’s income, cost of living, availability of pediatricians, safety, employment and spending on education. The magazine rated the nation’s 50 largest metropolitan areas.

Pittsburgh and Baltimore rounded out the top five cities. 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 and Charlotte, N.C., floundered near the bottom of the Forbes list.
