Monmouth is a beautiful town with a lot to offer..but it is in fact a college town. The numbers are going to be drastically lower in the categories your looking for because of that. I've lived in Monmouth\ independence my entire life and you will not find a better town in Oregon.

The people are friendly, the crime rate is much lower than the other towns listed, it's a cute little town and is townies are happy as clams with it.
