CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A new study lists Cincinnati as the 17th best city in the United States to retire.

The poor economy and the fear of financial security has caused many Americans to extend their working lives and delay retirement. As a result, WalletHub found the best and worst places to retire in the U.S.

The network explored the socioeconomic environments of the 150 largest cities in the United States, Cincinnati included. Key metrics include cost of living, job prospects for workers aged 65 and older and the availability of recreational activities in the city.

The study also examined each city's quality of life and health care conditions.

With No. 1 being the best and No. 75 average, Cincinnati was ranked first in activities.

The Queen City came in at No. 60 in affordability, No. 21 in jobs, No. 120 in quality of life and No. 70 in healthcare.

The best place to retire is Tampa, Florida, according to WalletHub. Providence, Rhode Island, came in last at No. 150.

The study hopes to help American retirees find the best and most wallet-friendly places to call home for their Golden Years.
