It has been a ranking-happy day for San Diego: We are the 7th least affordable city for families according to, the 2nd most popular city to relocate to, according to a BusinessWeek survey, and one of our local universities, San Diego State, ranks 2nd nationwide among research universities for the number of students studying abroad, according to a report on international educational exchange.

What does that add up to? Workers who aren’t here want to be here, families who are here can’t afford to be here, and young, educated people here spend a lot of time getting away from here.

Got any interesting rankings for San Diego and its institutions? Feel free to shoot me an e-mail at You can also amuse me with rankings of your own making.
