FTM file. 
A new study ranks seven Northern Kentucky neighborhoods among the 25 best places to live in their respective states.

The new rankings are from the national website Niche, which collects data based on crime, public schools, cost of living, job opportunities and local amenities. Data comes from the U.S. Census, FBI and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, among other sources.

The same website ranked Fort Thomas Independent Schools the best places to teach in Kentucky last year.
