With only 17 state capitals being also the largest cities in their respective states but not necessarily offering the best quality of life, the personal-finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis to determine 2017's Best State Capitals to Live in.

To identify the most livable seats of state government, WalletHub’s data team compared all 50 across 42 key metrics, ranging from “cost of living” to “K–12 school-system quality” to “number of attractions.”
Livability of Columbus (1=Best, 25=Avg.):

  • 13th – Housing Affordability
  • 19th – Median Household Income (Adjusted for Cost of Living)

  • 12th – % of State- & Local-Government Employees
