Scottsdale is one of the top cities for working parents

by Emily Marek

Working full time and raising a family can be a challenge in any city. However, a new report shows that certain cities are better suited for working parents and their children.

CoworkingCafe ranked U.S. cities with over 200,000 residents based on education (including metrics like childcare affordability and public school rankings, availability and density) and work (including metrics like the share of remote workers, the share of remote-eligible jobs and available coworking space), which were each weighted at 40%. Health and environment (including metrics like pediatrician availability, green space availability and air quality) was weighted at 20%.

Scottsdale earned a score of 52.6, making it the eighth-best U.S. city for working parents. But what makes Scottsdale such a hospitable place for working parents?

For starters, the city boasts 128 acres of green space per 1,000 residents, the highest proportion in the nation. Childcare costs are also relatively affordable in Scottsdale, with costs amounting to 12% of the median household income.

Furthermore, over one-fifth of the population in the Scottsdale area works remotely. The city also has the fifth-highest rate of workplaces that allow hybrid work both at home and in the office at 81%.
