Chart: What's The Cost of Living In Your Community?
Another great interactive map from Visual Capitalist (CEO Jeff Desjardins recently appeared on NGPF podcast) showing the relative value of $100 in communities across the U.S. (go directly to the map on the website which will allow you to scroll over to get information on your specific metro areas):
- Which states/regions seem to have lowest cost of living (where $100 is worth the most)?
- Which states/regions seem to have highest cost of living (where $100 is worth the least)?
- What do you think is the relationship between cost of living and salaries? Would you expect that people earn more/less in salary in region with low cost of living? Why?
- Will the cost of living in a given city/state affect where you want to settle after school?
