Wichita ranks No. 5 in best places for professional women to live

Movoto, a website that provides information about the real estate sector, says Wichita is one of the best places for professional women to live.

Wichita ranked No. 5 on its list of 100 metropolitan areas for working women.

Atop the list was Lubbock, Texas.

It was followed by Omaha, Neb., Corpus Christi, Texas, and Lincoln, Neb.

The writers at Movoto said criteria for the rankings included the following: average commute time, recent job growth, unemployment rates, adjusted earnings (adjusted for cost of living relative to other cities), and the number of women's professional groups per capita.

Movoto seemed impressed by Wichita's average salary for working women, which it said was $649 a week, and by the 20-minute average commute time.
