Notably, the south covers 7 of the 10 states, and the other 3 are already notoriously known for having a high cost of living.
Zippia points out that from looking at their complete list the lower the student loan average, the lower the cost of living, giving students the opportunity to pay off their debt.

- Unemployment Rate: 4.1%
