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 University)
  • Philadelphia = 1.35 (Valley Forge Christian College)
  • Minneapolis = 1.12 (North Central University)
  • Springfield, MO = 1.04 (CBC; Evangel; Global; AGTS)
  • 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.
