What A Dollar Is Worth In Every State

No surprise that a dollar doesn't go far in California, Hawaii and New York, but there are a lot of states where a dollar goes way beyond 100 cents! The team at 24/7 Wall St. evaluated data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis that considered factors like the price of housing, food, and services.

The 24/7 Wall St. analysis proved that a dollar goes furthest in states with low-income residents, which it has the lowest purchasing power in the nation's largest and most affluent cities. Here's how the study broke out the value of a dollar in each American state.
