Durham is #6 of the top 10 cheapest cities to live in according to Kiplinger

Durham is one of the “10 cheapest cities you’ll want to live in,” according to a recent report by Kiplinger.

The rankings are based on below-average living costs, high household incomes relative to the cost of living, an unemployment rate below the national average and access to fun, low-cost things to do. Only U.S. cities with populations of 50,000 or more are ranked.

Here are the top 10 most inexpensive (and desirable) cities, ranked according to median household income:

  1. Round Rock, Texas
  2. Cedar Rapids, Iowa
  3. Temple, Texas
  4. Lincoln, Nebraska
  5. Norman, Oklahoma
  6. Durham
  7. Denton, Texas
  8. St. George, Utah
  9. Corpus Christi, Texas
  10. Omaha, Nebraska
