Cost of Living
To assist you to compare cost-of-living figures between the DFW/Waxahachie area and other areas of the country, recent web research reveals the following indices. The closest city approximating Cost of Living in Waxahachie is Ft. Worth/Arlington.
If Fort Worth/Arlington = 1 on the scale, then other areas relate as follows:
- Lakeland = 1.04 (Southeastern College of the AG)
- Philadelphia = 1.35 (Valley Forge Christian College)
- Minneapolis = 1.12 (North Central University)
- Springfield, MO = 1.04 (CBC; Evangel; Global; AGTS)
- Santa Cruz = 1.53 (Bethany College)
- Costa Mesa = 1.50 (Vanguard University)(from another site)
- Seattle = 1.43 (Northwest College)
In other words, if you made $100,000 here, you would need to make 143,000 in Seattle to enjoy the same lifestyle financially.
