After crunching the data from 942 U.S. metro areas, we determined the best place to live to pay off debt in each state.
Getting out of debt is easier when you’re not spending a fortune on housing and transportation, and when you have a job making a decent income, so the metro areas in each state were ranked for:
- housing costs
- unemployment levels
- and the percentage of people who typically either get to work without a car or who work from home
The rankings are based on the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (2017 5-year) estimates for median monthly housing costs, median family income in inflation-adjusted dollars, unemployment status, and means of transportation to work.
With that said, here is the best place to live to pay off debt in each state.
