Phoenix’s Southeast Valley ranks high for least distressed residents

• The Economic Innovation Group has revealed 2017’s distressed communities index, a tool for measuring the vitality of U.S. communities through variables such as health outcomes, public assistance spending, demographics, and educational attainment.

• The Southeast Valley took three spots in the top 10 for the nation’s 100 largest cities, with Phoenix’s Gilbert at #1, Chandler at  #4, and Scottsdale at #10, with distress scores of 2.7, 10.6, and 25.2 out of 100, respectively.

• Cities with under 100,000 residents, intense industrial prioritization, and dated residential housing were almost always less prosperous, whereas high population growth rates, large technological involvements, and newer residential infrastructure consistently secured higher prosperity scores.
