Which greater Danbury area town do you live in? How does it measure up? Let's find out!

Niche.com is a website that analyzes dozens of public data sets and conducts thousands of interviews in towns and cities throughout the United States. The information helps people decide where they might like to live based on their preferences such as cost of living, outdoor activities, safety, nightlife, diversity, housing costs, the quality of public and private schools, climate, and jobs.

I've compiled the data for the above factors and how they're rated on niche.com., and have come up with a 'Report Card' for Danbury and the greater Danbury area towns of Bethel, New Milford, Brookfield, New Fairfield, Newtown, and Ridgefield.
