The Slice

1993 “Places Rated Almanac” on Spokane

The book looked at 351 metropolitan areas in the United States and Canada and ranked each in several categories, 1 through 351.

Here is how Spokane scored 20 years ago.

Costs of living: 164

Transportation: 130

Jobs: 148

Education: 132

Climate: 169

Crime: 168

Arts: 102

Health care: 69

Recreation: 221

Overall rank: 98

Since then? If you actually care, I'd invite you to do an online search.

Me, I'm almost afraid to look and possibly discover that we have fallen out of the top 100.
