Decatur is on a list of the Top 100 Best Small Towns of 2015.

Livability, a site that looks at the best places to live in the U.S., ranked Decatur number 36. No other Georgia towns made the list.

The list was compiled looking at health care, housing, the economy, education, social and civic capital, amenities, demographics, and infrastructure. Livability said, “We examined more than 40 data points each for more than 12,000 towns with populations between 1,000 and 20,000.”

The site has previously done a Top 10 Small Towns list, but this is the inaugural Top 100 Best Small Towns list.

You may remember Decatur was named one of the 10 Best Atlanta Suburbs. And it’s one of the Safest Places to Live in Georgia.

Surprisingly, Decatur ranked third on an Top 10 list of “Atlanta Neighborhoods With the Most Affairs.”
