Livability.Com rated cities with populations between 20,000 and 350,000 people and put Tempe at No. 43. Scottsdale checked in at No. 89.

The report is based on eight categories, including economics, housing, education and health care.

Scottsdale scored high in education and amenities as well as social and civic capital. Tempe scored high in infrastructure and education as well as amenities.

The top two cities were Palo Alto, Calif., and Boulder, Colo.
