YUKON, Oklahoma -

Five Oklahoma communities are in the top 50 suburbs in the US, according to a study by a national real estate firm.

In the study of more than 1,500 suburbs, Coldwell Banker identified the top suburbs that are exploding in terms of economic and population growth.

Yukon came in at 42nd on the list. Other Oklahoma communities making the cut include, Broken Arrow [15th], Bartlesville [30th], Stillwater [39th], and Moore [45th].

Coldwell Banker says the rankings are based on a number of factors, but focused on employment rates, both year-over-year increases and overall unemployment that fall well below the national norm.

They also factored in access to suburban staples such as grocery stores, shopping, banks and entertainment; proximity to good schools; light commute times and low crime.

These suburbs are recovering quickly from the national recession, and emerging as the best places to live.
