How does Iowa compare to national statistics?
According to the Iowa Department of Economic Development, the Iowa workforce is highly skilled, educated and productive. Living here is more economical than in most other areas of the country. Third quarter 2008 ACCRA figures show Iowa as having the 16th lowest cost of living in the nation. Housing prices are lower, and commuting to and from work is usually faster and more economical, compared than larger cities and their traffic jams and delays. There’s access to quality health care and Iowa consistently ranks as one of the healthiest states in which to live. *Source: www.Iowa.com
