Milwaukee has a reputation for being more affordable than other big cities in the country, and a recent cost of living analysis reflects that. Move.org recently analyzed data from the 75 largest cities in the United States to see which had the most affordable cost of living and, at the other end of the scale, the most expensive cities, like New York City and San Francisco.
Milwaukee ranks among the lower third on the list for cost of living, with average monthly expenses of $1,657.54. That is slightly less expensive than Cincinnati ($1,663.71) and slightly pricier than Bakersfield, California ($1,653.69).
Those monthly averages break down as follows:
- Rent for a one-bedroom apartment
- Utilities (electricity, water, etc.)
- Food (groceries plus occasional restaurant meals).
Move.org focused their research on the 75 most populous cities in the United States. To calculate each city’s cost of living, they added the city’s average rent for one-bedroom apartment to the average costs of utilities, internet, food and fuel according to numbeo.com.
