Most Livable Mid-Sized Cities – 2019 Edition
Because the cost of living tends to correlate with population size, mid-sized cities are often more affordable alternatives to large cities and potentially offer better opportunities to save and invest. Your salary can go a lot further when your costs are lower, so people who use a cost-of-living calculator to compare expenses between cities may gravitate away from major metropolises.
In this study, we assess and rank the affordability and livability of mid-sized cities in the U.S. by looking at a variety of economic factors. Like in last year’s study, we identified mid-sized cities in America as those with populations above 100,000, excluding the 100 largest cities in the country.
