According to the Web site for Men's Health  magazine, Portland, Maine tied with Washington D.C. for having the most eligible women out of 100 cities across the country. Both cities received an A+ rating. This is quite a step up for Portland after its poor showing in Men's Health's ratings of the most sex-happy cities . In that study Portland ranked dead last in 100th place.
To determine the rankings, Men's Health used the following data: the ratio of single women to single men, the percentage of college-educated women, the percentage of gainfully employed single women (all from the Census), and the number who work out (Experian Simmons). Using those criteria, the magazine assigned a letter grade to each city. See the list here .
