Thinking of leaving Des Moines for a new job? Before you do, see how far your salary would go in another city.
CNNMoney's cost of living calculator looks at the price difference of groceries, housing, transportation, healthcare and utilities among various U.S. cities.
For example, someone making $50,000 in Des Moines would have to make $78,000 in Washington, D.C., to maintain a similar cost of living, with housing costing 171 percent more in D.C.
