Why It Matters To You: If you're looking to relocate, bigger doesn't always mean better. Some areas stand out for offering great job prospects along with a lower cost of living.
Considerations: Each region's ranking is determined by weighing three factors equally: hiring opportunity, cost of living, and job satisfaction. Only the 50 most populated U.S. metros are considered.
