SmartAsset, a New York City-based personal finance technology company, has released a new survey ranking the best cities in America to live the “American Dream.”

Chicago suburb Aurora topped the list, which considered 261 largest cities and each’s diversity and economic mobility, according to a press release.

Other factors included unemployment, home ownership, and home values.

In a press release, the company said, “Way up from the 44th spot last year, Aurora, Illinois, impresses by tying with West Valley City, Utah as the best place to live the American Dream in 2017.

“Aurora moved up the ranks with improved mobility numbers … this means that the citizens of Aurora have the opportunity to move to higher economic percentiles than the generations before them.”
