A financial website ranked Los Angeles suburbs by which perform the best across various economic, social and quality-of-life categories, and Yorba Linda pops up on lists for highest-earning, fastest growth and highest healthcare coverage. Not that Yorba Linda (or any Orange County city) would like to be known as a suburb of LA, but can you guess which of those three lists had The Land of Gracious Living at No. 1?
According to NerdWallet.com:
Yorba Linda was the fifth and final city on Nerd Wallet's Highest-Earning LA Suburbs list, where La Cañada Flintridge was No. 1, but both of those tied for No. 3 for Highest Rate of Healthcare Coverage. Seal Beach finished fifth there, and Rancho Palos Verdes was numero uno.
Another Orange County city finished No. 1 on an LA suburbs list:
Meanwhile, Westminster came in fifth on a list of Most Ethnically Diverse LA Suburbs, where Gardena was No. 1. San Francisco-based Nerd Wallet used census data that shows Westminster is 37.9 percent white, 1.3 percent black or African-American, 48.9 percent Asian and 22.9 percent Hispanic.
The only lists where an Orange County city didn't even draw iron was Where Women Make More Than Men (Inglewood is No. 1) and--sad face--Most Educated (those eggheads in Manhattan Beach are tops).
