Hello Roy - while the source of this information raises questions of its own, any city or community can tout its findings to underscore to others what they might expect to find when visiting, living or making a decision to move.

Good morning, Roy... I follow WalletHub's studies for Charlotte news... some how missed this information about Gaithersburg. Who'd have thought it?
