Walker Among Best Towns in Louisiana for Young Families

  

Town receives high marks in education and growth

San Francisco, CA (October 9, 2013) – NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, conducted a study on the best towns in Louisiana for young families, and Walker is in the top ten.

NerdWallet ranked Walker second after assessing the town’s cost of living, education system, and economic growth. The town’s school district received an eight-out-of-ten rating from the education nonprofit, GreatSchools. Walker’s residents also experienced the third-highest growth in income compared to all towns in the top ten.

NerdWallet sought to better inform young families and parents-to-be by analyzing towns across the state according to five criteria:

Public school ratings  

  1. Median home value
  2. Cost of homeownership
  3. Median income
  4. Economic growth

“Walker, located in Livingston Parish, is home to excellent schools. This year, three of the parish’s schools received recognition from U.S. News & World Report for being top in the nation,” said NerdWallet analyst Mike Anderson. “Additionally, the community’s business parks have helped cultivate new opportunities for residents.”
