West Mifflin is a good, large suburb for growing families and is home to many popular businesses. However, it is not very diverse or eco-friendly.

West Mifflin has a population of people representing all SES. There are plenty of good areas for families to develop and create connections within the community. Like all areas there are some sections that are more crime ridden.
It's a nice area, friendly people. Everybody minds their business and goes their separate ways, but that's not necessarily a bad things. Definitely a place I would consider raising a family.
