10 Cities with the Highest and Lowest Annual Incomes

Posted on | Posted By | 0 Comments

Wrapping up our look at WalletHub’s research into the best and worst cities in which someone could find a job, we move on to the cities with the highest and lowest median annual incomes and the cities with the highest and lowest housing affordability.

For annual income, the Midwest and West Coast dominated the highest-median chart, with Overland Park, Kans., coming in at No. 5; Chandler, Ariz., at No. 4.; and Fremont, Calif., at No. 3.

The No. 2 spot was claimed by Gilbert, Ariz., and sliding into No. 1 was Plano, Texas.

Numbered 146 to 150, areas with the lowest median annual income included two Florida cities, Miami and Hialeah, at No. 146 and No. 147, respectively. Detroit, Mich., came in at No. 148, while Cleveland, Ohio, took the No. 149 spot and Newark, N.J., the bottom spot.

Once again, the East Coast was left off the list of cities with the highest housing affordability. In this category, Arizona and Texas dominated. Peoria and Gilbert, Ariz., came in at No. 5 and No. 4, respectively. Fort Wayne, Ind., was sandwiched in at No. 3 as Plano and Corpus Christi, Texas, grabbed the top two slots.

California, however, comprised most of the cities with the lowest housing affordability: Glendale, Calif., came in at No. 146, while Los Angeles and Oakland tied for No. 147. Newark, N.J., was No. 149, and Honolulu, Hawaii, settled in dead last at No. 150.

As Richie Bernardo, author of the article, wrote, this data was compiled by looking at the local job markets in “150 of the most populated U.S. cities across 16 key metrics.”

These statistics take on an extra degree of importance considering that “2015 seems a good time to be on the job market, depending, of course, on where one lives,” he writes. “According to the National Association for Business Economics, nonfarm employment will grow by nearly 220,000 jobs per month while unemployment will fall to 5.4 percent by the fourth quarter.”

In many ways, it’s this kind of research that will make or break your final decision about a job opportunity. By carefully considering all factors, including those not related to the job itself, you should be able to arrive at a rational, logical decision for your career and family.

As physicians and advanced practitioners who are looking for jobs, what don’t you want from an area? What do you consider to be a healthy lifestyle for you and your family?
