How Far Will That Benjamin Go?

As you might expect, it depends where you live.

The Tax Foundation created a map that shows the value of the goods that $100 can buy in each state relative to the national average.

What $100 Buys You, State by State.  (Vocativ, 8/20/2014)

The value of a dollar and average income.  Now it shouldn’t come as much as a shock that the states where the purchasing power of your dollar is the lowest also generally have a higher average income. Same goes for states with high-purchasing power and low income. This, however, is not a hard and fast rule

 Wisconsin = $107.64
