Making the leap from Florida to Massachusetts
When you start checking statistics, you can easily discover many similarities between Florida and Massachusetts.
The two states are still quite different – first in size, second in population, and third in climate. These are all serious differences that could sway a person easily. If you are moving to Massachusetts from Florida you may want to know a few things about the state and its major differences with Florida.
The statistics say that public schools are average in both states, although many would argue that.
In Boston you will find some of the best universities in the world – Harvard and MIT to set the stage – and we highly doubt public schools are average there, but probably we should trust the statistics. According to places.findthehome.com, people in both states are moderately educated, and because Boston does not represent the whole of Massachusetts we can try and trust the statistics to some degree.
Some myths busted
One difference that kind of contradicts their own statistics is that in Florida you have lower income middle class, while in Massachusetts it is upper income middle class. Another statistic we should mention is the types of common age groups identified in both states – Florida is represented mostly by retirees over the age of 65, while Massachusetts has a “typical age distribution.” However, both states contain disproportionately large middle aged populations. The average commute time is 26 minutes in Florida and 28 in Massachusetts and the unemployment rate is higher in Florida – about 10 percent versus about 8 percent for Massachusetts.
Which state is better?
When you ask which state is better to live in, the answers will vary depending on who you ask. Many retirees will tell you that Florida is better only because of the warm climate, salty water, and laid back culture. However, if you ask a younger person they would tell you Massachusetts is the place to be because of the good colleges, better economy and the fact that you can enjoy all four seasons.
