The largest city in the South is culturally attractive to 6% of our respondents, but has an unemployment rate well above the national average.

7% of our respondents would move to Chicago. With an unemployment rate of 6.5%, they may want to look elsewhere.

San Francisco, CA

Sunny San Fran’s cost of living is climbing. Since 43% of our respondents would move to avoid high costs of living, I wouldn’t expect to see the 6% of people who “liked” it moving here. .
