San Diego Ranks 4th in West Coast Cities for New Grads

San Diego ranked fourth in the western U.S. as a place for new grads and 19th nationally, in a recent study by Zumper, an apartment search site.

San Diego scored within the top 10 percent of U.S. cities for young professional income and amenities and in the top 20 percent for millennial population and dating life. The report analyzed 260 cities across the U.S., using the latest census numbers and Zumper’s own rental data.

San Diego’s overall score was 74.1, receiving an ‘A,’ with higher scores in millennials, income, amenities and dating. The region had lower employment and rent scores.

Salt Lake City topped the listing for the western region, with high employment and income scores. Boulder and Denver followed. San Francisco was absent from the list due to the cost of living and the most expensive rent prices in the nation, according to the report.
