Now there’s facts to back up your beliefs – NerdWallet has analyzed data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey to determine that Dublin ranks in the Top 5 Best Places for Young Families in Northern California.

NerdWallet looked at things like education quality, home affordability, family friendliness, and growth and prosperity.

Nearby San Ramon came in third, while Dublin placed fourth. Here’s what NerdWallet had to say about Dublin:

Dublin, San Ramon’s neighbor in Alameda County, is located on the BART train line, allowing for a car-free commute to the East Bay and San Francisco, and its crime risk score of “most safe” is the highest possible. Median family income grew 54.88% in Dublin from 1999 to 2014, the second-highest amount in our top 10. The Dublin Unified School District is expanding: A new kindergarten complex at James Dougherty Elementary School is scheduled to be completed in fall 2017, and a new K-8 school in the Jordan Ranch development is scheduled to open in fall 2018. Each year Dublin hosts Splatter, a popular food, art and wine festival for the whole family. The city is home to a wide range of parks and open space areas, including the 654-acre Dublin Hills Regional Park.
