For the social opportunities factor, they looked at the percentage of seniors and retirement centers in each city. Data was used from several government sources including the Census Bureau.

In the overall scores, combining each of these factors, Stuart placed fourth in Florida, and Vero Beach placed seventh. No other Treasure Coast city made the rankings.
