How do you determine the best neighborhoods in Stockton?

In order to rank the best neighborhoods in Stockton, we had to determine what criteria defines a “best”.

  • Low unemployment rates
  • Low crime
  • High home prices
  • High population densities (A proxy for things to do)

We limited the analysis to neighborhoods with over 1,000 people.

We then ranked each neighborhood with scores from 1 to 15 in each category, where 1 was the best.

Next, we averaged the rankings for each neighborhood to create a best neighborhood index.

And finally, we crowned the neighborhood with the lowest best neighborhood index the “Best City Neighborhood In Stockton.” We’re lookin’ at you, Brookside.
