US News & World Report – RE Logo By Devon Thorsby of US News & World Report – RE | Slide 2 of 22: Best Places 2019 Rank: 79

Metro Population: 642,339

Median Home Price: $143,850

Median Annual Salary: $43,880

CRSI Score: 5.34

While Wichita ranks 20th for its climate change resilience out of the 125 metro areas on the Best Places to Live list, people living in this region, which the EPA categorizes as including Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska, should expect extreme heat and rising temperatures. Additionally, people in this part of the country should be prepared for the growing potential for drought in the future. However, the level of risk in three of the four counties in the Wichita metro area appears relatively low, so residents are less likely to experience these threats.
