Garland was rated the sixth-best among all major American cities in a list of The Best Cities for Black Women to Flourish Financially, published by personal finance technology company MoneyGeek.com.
Income, the cost of crime per capita, homeownership and poverty levels from 164 cities across the United States were used as criteria for the ranking.
“There are pockets of the U.S. where the wealth gap narrows and Black women have more opportunities,” the report states. Suburban cities of large metropolitan areas ranked highest on the list. Garland was third among 13 southern cities that made the top 25 and second overall in Texas, trailing only Houston suburb Pearland.
