Totally agree with this index results! I’ve lived in Raleigh the past 6 years and downtown the past 3 and while I travel a LOT for work, I always can’t wait to get home and enjoy my home city. It’s a small city feel with a lot going on and great people!

I suggest that the previous commentator try another place to live in the world. Personally, I have lived in Raleigh for over 50 years and I have seen much of the world and I would not want to call any other place home. Great people. Great hospitals. Great transportation on excellent roads and air. A job for everyone who will work is available. Great affordable entertainment. Great affordable everything! Healthcare is a problem all over the USA. Too many profit takers (hospitals, drug makers, doctors, lawyers, insurance companies). True that all of these must take a half a loaf. Very few other things to complain about unless one is just negative about things in general.

Talk about inflated ranking. Cost of living isn’t even good, we have low utilities costs, and supposedly decent housing costs according to this list. OH WAIT everyone knows that the presence of the teaching hospitals misrepresents how “good” our healthcare CAN be. When most people use urgent care on account of they work but our health insurance market is so shitty that no one under a certain income level can afford INSURANCE let alone proper healthcare.

Just another unexplained list meant to make Raleighites rap themselves on the back and ignore the locals that struggle.
