​​​​HOUSTON - Two reports have been released ranking Houston and its surrounding area as one of the best places to raise a young family.

Both studies looked at housing costs, education quality, environment for children and safety, though they differed in some areas.

One report that considered job opportunities gave Houston a higher rating, while another report that weighed safety as the most significant category gave the metro a lower score.

A report from Apartmentlist.com ranked Pearland the 10th best place for small families. The city scored best in the education and housing scores, while falling behind in the child environment and crimes scores.

Meanwhile, on a similar list from ValuePenguin.com, Houston came in as the second best city for young families. The city stood out for its opportunities for working parents, outdoor activities and education quality on this report.

In recent months, Houston has been ranked one of the best cities for various demographics.

Late last year, it was named a top destination for Millennials, and it was also recently rated among the friendliest cities nationally for pet-owning renters. 

However, Houston has also been rated one of the worst cities for Baby Boomers.
