BUFFALO, NY (WKBW/FORBES.COM) -- The Buffalo-Niagara region ranked tenth on the Forbes.com list of 'Best Places to Raise a Family.'

Forbes devised their list by ranking America's 100 largest metropolitan statistical areas in seven different categories. They take in to account cost of living, prevalence of home ownership, median household income, housing costs, commute time, crime and the percentage of young adults that graduate high school.

The Northeast placed very well, claiming six of the top ten spots on the list, including the cities of Rochester and Syracuse.

Buffalo scored very well in the categories of 'Cost of Living,' 'Commute,' and 'Education Rank.'
