CommercialCafe narrowed its scope to metros with populations of at least 1M and used the following factors to determine the highest scoring metros:

  • Millennial population growth between 2014-2018
  • Millennial population share
  • Regional price parity of the regional cost of living comparison in which scores of 100 are equivalent to the national average
  • Millennial unemployment rates
  • Share of Millennials having employer-based health insurance
  • Share of working Millennials with BA degrees
  • Average commute times

In its listing of the 10 best places to live and work, CommercialCafe included two categories of the seven factors that had the highest scores.

You’ll note that metros located in the South and Midwest scored the highest due to relatively lower cost of living realities.
