Austin has been listed as one of the top 10 cities to live while in quarantine.

According to a study by Zippia, there are four key components that best determine quality of life during quarantine:

  • Apartment Space
  • Internet speed
  • Take-out options
  • Park access

Ranking each city based on data obtained from RENTCafe, DoorDash, and the US Census, here's how Austin held up against the competition:  

  • Apartment Size: 859 sq ft
  • Broadband Internet: 80.9%
  • Park Land Per 1k People: 22.9
  • Take-out Options: 1564

The study credits Austin with having the second smallest apartments of the top 10 ranked cities (San Diego being the smallest), with fast internet and substantial green space.
