Re: Maybe remove the numbers?
@GAPprogrammer- Well, the issue is that there are three common jobs listed there and no city is the same for every job. We chose to list them in order of bang for the buck for one of those jobs (software engineer) rather than average the three jobs or something. 

So, you really do get your best bang for your buck working in Seattle as a software engineer. Even though it is expensive you get paid more as well. Each job title was different, but we chose software engineer because it is the most common IT job. 

We put the other data there to compare it with.

Re: Getting the Most for Your Pay
@pedro- I think there is always a lag between the economic realities and salaries. I would assume as we revisit this data you'll see companies in cities with less value need to step up their salary game.

Re: Getting the Most for Your Pay
@jastroff- Yes, one of the most interesting parts of this survey is that being "number 1" in one area didn't make yo number one in all of them. St. Louis seemed like the best mix of all three jobs. i never really think of St. Louis as a tech center so that's interesting. I guess it takes a lot of tech to sell beer.
