    • Compared to the state, which has a cost of living index of 97.8, and the nation, which has a cost of living index of 100, Jefferson's cost of living index is 91.7, making it a fairly budget-friendly place to live. Healthcare and housing are particularly affordable here, which may appeal to seniors seeking out affordable assisted living. 
    • Jefferson ranks among the hottest cities in Wisconsin, with summer highs averaging around 83 degrees. The coldest month of the year is January, when temperatures drop well below freezing nearly every day with an average low of 10 degrees.
