Given 160K in the midwest vs 220K in SV it's no contest for me.
As a bonus, driving in the midwest is normal speed and there are a minimum of hipster douchebags running around.
Don't know why you are cherry picking economic data from 6 year old census data when you can see the obvious
economic indicators every quarter. It's pretty obvious that SV housing and rent are not sustainable while wages
are stagnant in the valley due to huge amounts of imported labor.
