Interesting. I noted a few cities on the list where I have lived in the past and by no coincidence, also had pretty good experiences with the people while living and visiting. I wonder why Indianapolis isn't on the list? LOL

I'd say that cities on this list are probably populated by more civilized and even intelligent people in general than the metro areas where people are not exactly pleasant. I'm not surprised to see Cincinnati on this list.

Looks like they measured this by the amount of fundraising in the metro area.

Hate to be the cynic but in general people are less compassionate and more self centered than they used to be - no matter where you live. A lot of people give to charities and fund raisers to assuage their conscience.

Yup. People are far more self absorbed than they ever were in my memory at least in some places. I can't comment about Cincinnati in that regard since I have not actually lived there. I can only comment about my time spent there visiting or while staying at my house. But I will say that people there are far less self absorbed and far less nasty than Indianapolis and its metro area.

this dude i work with, his folks are from el salvador. he's lived in dc and texas and hates living here. he tells me he gets called a **** all the time. he's a nice guy and too little to start ***** and can't wait to get back to texas. but i tell him he needs to leave the burbs occasionally, especially winton woods/fairfield. it does suck that those neighborhoods are apparently uninviting, full of hamilton outcasts (full disclosure, i like the city of hamilton, but i know the people), but inside the city limits it seems to me more accepting of different cultures. i grew up in harrison and i know the haunts of southeast indiana and you would prefer it to be white

Agreed. For example, Cincinnati's not just a largely corporate city brimming with an intelligent, educated work force, but moreover a city whose most powerful corporations have shaped the city's civic character, its sense of fair play and spirit of giving. This can account for many individuals who have taken up causes aplenty and made them their own. Across the nation, other cities have done likewise; but by no coincidence Cincinnati has done so very well.

Sure, people volunteer and donate outside corporations, but major corporations like Kroger and P&G for example are well known for encouraging their employees to give back. And that makes a difference.
