States in a Snapshot

We are comparing states based on requirements and ease of obtaining a license.

Our top three states are Delaware, New Mexico and New York. All three states do not require the TOEFL, TSE and TWE. They also allow internationally educated personnel seeking a US license to work with a temporary license for at least six months. Lastly, all three states have no limit in the number of times you can take the exam (in case you fail the first time).

The median hourly wage for the U.S. is $30.33, and the median annual wage is $63,100.

In the third quarter of 2007, Missouri had the 5th lowest cost of living in the United States. In general, the most expensive areas to live are New England, Alaska, Hawaii, and the West Coast. The least expensive continue to be the Midwest and Southern States.

MERIC derives the cost of living index for each state by averaging the indices of participating cities and metropolitan areas in that state.  Missouri’s cost of living for the third quarter of 2007 was 91.6.
