Worried that the relatively rosy economic times may soon be over? You’re not alone.

A recent survey from Duke University found that half of U.S. CEOs surveyed expect a recession to kick in by the end of this year, and even more — 82 percent — are sure a slump will hit by the end of 2020. If they’re right, we could all be in for some belt-tightening in the not-so-far-off future.

However, there are certain spots around the country where residents feel the bite of economic downturns like the Great Recession less severely. Website Livability.com compiled a list of seven cities, largely in the Midwest and South, where you might consider relocating to avoid the worst effects of any recession to come. Here’s a look at each, along with median home prices from Zillow.com and the local unemployment rate, based on Bureau of Labor Statistics data for December.
