Bellmawr has once again been named a 2020 Top Ten Camden County Town in South Jersey Magazine’s annual list.

Bellmawr is still tops. The Borough has been ranked #8 in South Jersey Magazine’s annual listing of Top Towns for 2020.

In 2019, Bellmawr ranked #9 .

In 2017 and 2018, Bellmawr was ranked #8.

To put together this year’s Top Towns rankings, the editors of South Jersey Magazine gathered data from the New Jersey State Police, the New Jersey Department of Education and the state’s Division of Local Government Services.

A weighted formula combined average property values and taxes, crime incidents reported per 1,000 resident, and 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).

This year, Haddonfield placed first as 2020 Top Ten Overall and also first place as Top Ten Town in Camden County.
