The Value of a Dollar in Each State

Methodology

To determine the value of a dollar in every state, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the 2014 regional price parity — the most recent year for which data is available — for every state with data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. 2014 per capita personal income also came from the BEA. Effective personal income was calculated by dividing the 2014 per capita personal income by the 2014 regional price parity. Median home values came from the 2015 U.S. Census Bureau’s American Consumer Survey.
