The Real Value of $100 by Metro Area

Earlier this week, we featured a map from the Tax Foundation that showed how far $100 goes in each state. They've gone a step further and broken it down by metro area, since it's a little confusing to paint, say, New York City and Cooperstown with the same brush.

Your $100 would buy you the least in Honolulu ($81.37), New York-Newark-Jersey City ($81.83), and San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara ($81.97). You can head over to their site for an interactive version.

The Afternoon Map is a semi-regular feature in which we post maps and infographics. In the afternoon. Semi-regularly. Thanks to Tax Foundation for this one.
