More money has been shown to increase happiness though

FACT: if the rest of the country had the economy of Houston, there would be less depression.

can't speak on the other states but i'm going to assume you haven't been to texas yet. quality of life is actually pretty important to me as well. texas has just about everything except mountains you can ski on. austin, dallas, and houston are great cities that can fit just about any lifestyle.

and o yeah...the money i save here affords me the ability to travel just about anywhere i want almost whenever i want to. try to do that when you are scraping to just to get by elsewhere.

other 10- 10 lists Texas has landed on

Default Re: Adjusted per cost of living, Houston dominates with the highest standard of living

I live in San Antonio for a year and a half and I loved it there. It was cheap enough that you could live comfortably and have a lot of unnecessary crap (like Ipods and Xbox's) without having to sacrifice your living arrangements. Is like living in Puerto Rico without all the shooting to be honest.

Living in Puerto Rico is cheap but you have to live way in the west because theres a lot of shooting north-east of the islands. It is becoming little new York .

Despite Houston leading the stats, I hated living there. Terrible traffic, extreme congestion. Not my kind of place.

On the other hand DFW and Austin are awesome.

and yeah the housing prices in TX are awesome. No wonder so many people from other states move to the big cities here.

Our house was $180,000 and it's 2400 sq. feet with 4 bedrooms 2 bath 2 living rooms.

If you like beer, pretty women, bomb ass food, great people, bars, football, sports, ****ing around at the lake, Texas is awesome.

Arkansas is pretty beautiful. Where you from?

Not sure I would be able to handle Houston traffic and the summer heat tho. I think if I were to move to Texas it would be Dallas. Seems like my kind of city.

Default Re: Adjusted per cost of living, Houston dominates with the highest standard of living

Do people in Houston make less money than other parts of the country? Or is it the lack of demand for housing there? I'm guessing a combination of both to a certain degree.

Northeast overall is rough for housing. Lots of different industries that provide high paying jobs for professionals to settle down. You've also got tons of people who have already been settled here for generations and aren't going to move too far from their family once they buy their first home.

I read something about cost of living where it said making 50K in Houston is equivalent to making 100k in NY.
