Mark Harden --- Denver Business Journal 

Douglas County ranks in second place on Movoto Real Estate's new list of the "10 Best Counties in America."

"The lowest poverty on our list and the highest high school graduation rate make Douglas County the second best in the nation," Movoto says.

Bracketing Douglas County are two in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C.: Loudoun County (No. 1) and Fairfax County (No. 3).

The real estate website's rankings are based on unemployment rate, median household income, median rent, median home price, percentage of families below the poverty line and high school graduation rate.
