This number does not take into account the variability of quality of life by neighborhood and by family circumstances. I live in Gold Coast, where it is very safe and everything is conveniently nearby (park, beach, museums, restaurants, shopping, nightlife, transportation). The lifestyle is ideal for adults who have means, but no children. There is only one unescapable drawback to Chicago: horrible winters, which is why I leave for California and Mexico and don't return until April.
