This infographic on freelance-friendly cities is going to come in handy whether you are considering a freelance career and want to see how your city stacks up, or if you are already freelancing and are considering moving. From GOOD Magazine, Work-Life Balance: What Makes a Freelance-Friendly City? is a chart that shows how work is changing the places we live in.

Working freelance is considered more conducive to achieving work-life balance. The freelance-friendly cities infographic critiques different American metropolises based on a yearly wage estimate, cost of living (housing and transportation) and overall affordability. While some have an optimal work-life balance (Nashville leads the pack), others are severely lacking, like Salt Lake City, Riverside and Sacramento.

The chart was created as part of the Good Cities Project in collaboration with Ford.
