Jackson County was recently ranked as the sixth most affordable small county in the nation for renters.

The ranking was done by AdvisorSmith.

"To determine housing affordability, we used the median household income in each county," the study said. "Our study also used the average household size to create a weighted median rent that was used to calculate the percentage of household income that is spent on rent. We then ranked the counties by the ratio of rent-to-income in 827 U.S. counties."
