Just some food for thought, but Niche (a website almost purely used for analyzing areas to live) has this list .....

https://www.niche.com/places-to-live...-for-families/

This list is for the entire country and several CA cities come in in the top 50.

#7 Irvine
#12 Berkeley
#16 Sunnyvale
#19 Carlsbad
#22 Thousand Oaks
#29 Torrance
#32 Santa Clara
#35 San Francisco
#37 Burbank
#43 San Diego
#49 Temecula
#50 Roseville

I guess the methodology must be different.

Not sure what your agenda is with regards to this particular thread, and your apparent problem with me personally. But, any reference to any other town or the state in general is not relevant to this particular thread.

Its not .4%, its 40%. There is a difference. I have no problem with you, but you're the one who dragged race into this thread stating that somewhere that's 60% white can't be diverse (which is wrong by anyone's standards but your own).

I was in a hurry when I wrote that, and did not have time to mention other similar studies which have resulted in entirely different lists of "best cities." But, for example, another posted yesterday mentioned a list which gave Irvine as the #7 "best city to raise a family," and Aliso Viejo--which is practically adjacent--is not on the list at all.

All of the South OC cities are great places to raise a family*. That's not purely subjective, it's an observation based on having read many widely differing "best" lists. This one: https://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/cred...es-california/ lists my city, Rancho Santa Margarita, as the highest-ranking OC city.

*Well, maybe not Laguna Woods.

Or you can consider more diverse places like Oakland, Compton, Watts, Boyle Heights, etc...
