How does MoVal rate compare to Irvine in recent poll on best place to raise a family?

WalletHub compared more than 180 U.S. cities based on 46 key metrics that consider essential family dynamics, such as the cost of housing, the quality of local school and health-care systems, and the opportunities for fun and recreation. While obviously not perfect — given personal preferences and the limitations of publicly available data — our findings will hopefully give movers a sense of the areas that offer the greatest opportunity to achieve Wallet Fitness and live a long and happy life. Read on for the results, additional insight from experts and a detailed description of our methodology.

Irvine, California, was ranked #2 in the nation, with only Overland Park, Kansas, considered better.  But how do the I.E. cities rank in this survey?  Let's just say, none of them made the Top 100 List.  Riverside was the top-rated I.E. city coming in at #116.  It was just under Los Angeles, #115.  (Los Angeles is a better place to raise a family than Riverside?  Hmmm.) Moreno Valley was in the survey at #134.  We beat #139, Ontario, CA.  The bottom I.E. city is San Bernardino, #176. (At least they aren't last.)  What do Irvine and Riverside have that Moreno Valley doesn't?  Here are their rankings in the key areas of considered important in family dynamics.  (I don't understand Wallet Hub's "Affordability Rank." The more affordable a city is, that's bad?)
