It depends on the measurement and the weight placed on various cost of living factors. In 2 of the 3 assessments I quoted, Austin is ranked with a higher COL than Raleigh. In the 3rd, Raleigh is ranked as more expensive than Austin, though the difference between the two is not great. The NerdWallet COL calculator show them with essentially the same COL: https://www.nerdwallet.com/cost-of-l...eigh-vs-austin.

While there are slight differences in COL between Austin and Raleigh, both are found to be significantly less expensive than Philadelphia, regardless to the measurement tool. In fact, I haven’t found any reference tool that suggests otherwise. That’s what triggered me to pull all this data together to refute the claims in an earlier post regarding Philadelphia’s relative affordability.

Hope this helps.

It does. I figured Philly was more than both.

And "relative" is the key word. When I talk about Philly being affordable, I always try to specify that I'm talking about in comparison to our largest classically urban cities.

The guessing game is over on this site selection. Bloomberg and The Austin American Statesman are reporting that Austin has been selected for the Army Futures Command Center.

They are supposed to make a formal announcement at 9:00 AM today but the Austin newspaper is reporting that Austin was selected as the city.
