PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Monroeville and Bethel Park are two of the Best Small Cities in America, according to a new study.

The study from WalletHub looks at affordability, safety, local economy, health care and other issues in more than 1,300 small cities ranging from local restaurants to schools.

Only cities with a population between 25,000 and 100,000 were considered.

In the 84th percentile, Bethel Park is the highest-ranked Pennsylvania city on the list. Monroeville is not far behind, grouped in the 75th percentile. That means Bethel Park is in the top 16% of small cities and Monroeville is in the top 25%.

Other western and central Pennsylvania city's further down the list include State College, Erie and Altoona. Morgantown, West Virginia, is also on the list.
