7th - Median annual income
9th - % of workers with private health insurance
18th - Industry Variety
7th - Safety
14th - Annual transportation costs
33rd - Disability friendliness of employers
9th - Social life
14th Unemployment rate for high school graduates
51st - Time spent working & commuting

The top five rated communities in the study were St. Charles, Geneva, Grayslake, Libertyville and Schaumburg. The full rankings and description of the company's methodology can be found on WalletHub's website.
