The ranking is based on high salaries and affordable housing. This is the third year in a row that Huntsville earned the title, out of the 150 most populous metro areas in the U.S.

"An above-average individual annual salary and low cost of living mean Huntsville residents are keeping more money in their pockets to devote to other things. Just 19.16% of the median household income in Huntsville goes toward housing costs,” the report said.
