Re: “Arkansas: Where the living ain't easy

Any set of data that uses income without considering cost of living is misleading and useless. Zip code 71913 (Hot Springs) has a median income of about $38k according to www.city-data.com. Zip 11510 I picked at random in Baldwin, NY (on Long Island) has a median income of $100k, triple that of Hot Springs. But the cost of living index in Baldwin is 152 (100 is the average for the entire US). Hot Springs is only 87. Median housing cost in Baldwin is over $400k vs $133k in Hot Springs. Also the median real estate tax in Hot Springs is $681. In NY they soak Baldwin residents over $9,000! (the median)

It's no surprise that the NY Times and Time Magazine would publish this. They've both forgotten long ago what journalism really is.
