Report: Dallas is one of the least expensive cities for yuppies
Uh, is this a good thing?
Locality, a price comparison site aimed at local services, has crunched numbers from 1 million businesses across the nation to compile the “Yuppie Price Index,” an expansive look at which cities are the most and least expensive for yuppies, or as they define it, young urban professionals.
By examining the price for “typical yuppie services” like haircuts, eyebrow waxing and gym memberships, Locality determined that Dallas is the ninth least expensive place for yuppies to call home. According to the study, a typical Dallas yuppie spends $5,549 on yuppie services. San Fransico tops the list with an average yuppie spending at $6,718 while Indianapolis proved to be the least expensive at $5,181.
Surprisingly, Houston comes in as the second least expensive place for yuppies to live with only $5,202 in annual yuppie spending.
