While there are many variables to examine, Hamilton was rated favourably in terms of availability of health care facilities, while scoring poorly on population growth. While Hamilton placed 77, it was out of 190 places and thus we made it to the upper half of the spectrum.


  1. A ways to go, but not bad. The Poverty Industry syndrome is the biggest factor out here.

    1. Agree 100%. Industry is a good word for it

  2. Down from #74 in 2011, up from #81 in 2010.
