The Dallas-Plano-Irving metropolitan area ranks highly among U.S. tech cities, according to a new study release by the apartment search company Abodo.
According to the study, which looked at 76 U.S. cities by their tech employment opportunities, median tech salaries, and median one-bedroom rents, the Dallas area ranked No. 11.
The region scored a median tech salary of $84,160 and a one-bedroom rent average of $1,040. That created a wage to rent ratio of 6.7 to 1, Abodo said.
The Dallas Business Journal pointed out that because of its average rent of $3,480 a month, the San Francisco area had a ratio of 2.6 to 1.
The study metric gave a 75-percent weight to the number of technology workers per 1,000 total jobs, the Business Journal said. In Dallas, roughly 50 employees work in technology per 1,000 jobs.
The study said the other 25 percent of the score is assigned to the ratio of wage to rent, the Business Journal said.
