Interestingly, Wisconsin ranked 32nd in Affordability when compared to the rest of America. Not sure what that's all about but apparently, living in Wisconsin is just slightly less expensive than living in Illinois which came in 37th in the same category.

Speaking of, Illinois scored 18th on the list of best states to live in America. Illinois ranked 49th in the economy but 3rd and 8th in the US in the Quality of Life and Safety categories.
