Richard Florida and Charlotta Mellander recently created an interesting map of pay levels across all U.S. metro regions.

Some numbers from the project:

The highest-paying metro pays more than double the lowest-paying one ($66,780 vs. $30,670). In fact, there are roughly two dozen metros which have half the pay level of the highest-paying region. That highest-paying region is San Jose ($66,780), followed by nearby San Francisco ($61,940). Greater Washington, D.C. is third ($60,090), followed by Greater Boston ($58,330), the Boston suburb of Framingham ($57,660), Bridgeport-Stamford, Connecticut ($57,340), Bethesda, Maryland, a suburb of D.C. ($56,900), Greater New York ($56,250), Trenton-Ewing, New Jersey ($55,590), and Oakland, California ($54,590). Lowell, Massachusetts ($54,110), Boulder ($53,640), Seattle ($53,240), Newark-Union, New Jersey ($52,760), Hartford, Connecticut ($51,520), Durham, North Carolina ($50,480), Edison, New Jersey ($50,350), Nassau-Suffolk, New York ($50,190), and  Anchorage, Alaska ($49,730) are all among the top-20 highest-paying U.S. metros.
