In a previous report, the data journalism hub used Niche data to pinpoint the best cities, suburbs and towns in each state. Niche boiled down the best places to live using weather, schools, nightlife, diversity grades and other categories.
Stacker sought cities with affordable costs of living (including home values, grocery and gas prices, income and more), among other steps to find the best affordable places to live in each state.

“North Decatur is an exurb of Decatur and a suburb of Atlanta, located in Decatur’s northern border.
