Their study was based on a number of economic and quality-of-life factors such as commute times, cultural offerings, tax rates, recreational activities, and the quantity of family-friendly events and venues.

Recently, according to the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), the cost of living in Louisville is about 11% below the national average. Furthermore, the US Conference of Mayors (USCM) named Louisville the most livable large city.
