Introduction

Columbus , Ohio has reached new heights: trumping last year's top metropolis, Buffalo , New York , as 2012's best city for working mothers. The city, which also lands in the top ranks of FORBES best cities for business and careers, safest and most-wired cities, is home to more than 1.8 million and boasts higher than average salaries for women, who account for over 44% of the workforce

Pair the excellent unemployment rate (just 5.7 to the national average of 7.8) with an affordable but impressive (think great schools, childcare and doctors) quality of living makes the city an attractive locale for savvy working moms.
