Bellmawr has been named a top town once again in South Jersey Magazine’s annual Top Towns ranking.
Bellmawr placed seventh as a Top Ten Camden County Town — jumping up a spot in the rankings this year. Last year, Bellmawr ranked eighth.
South Jersey Magazine’s annual ranking of South Jersey’s most coveted communities was put together using data from the New Jersey State Police, the New Jersey Department of Education and the state’s Division of Local Government Services.
Using a weighted formula, average property values and taxes were combined, along with crime incidents reported per 1,000 residents as well as high school performance numbers consisting of average SAT scores, graduation rates and more.
The rankings are further broken down into two categories: big towns (population above 10,000) and small towns (population under 10,000).
Moorestown took this year’s top honors as both Top Town and Top Burlington County Town.
