What a prince you are, Dennis! :-)

I think you will want to specify what states belong in what categories. For
example, I live in Virginia and work in DC. VA and DC could go in mid-Atlantic
or South, depending on how you break things down.

Also, salaries vary greatly here by ZIP code. Pay in DC (ZIPs start with 200)
tends to be greater than elsewhere. But it isn't that simple -- pay in Bethesda
(20814) tends to be greater than in nearby Bowie (20716). I think this stuff
needs to be broken down by ZIP.

Otherwise, a great idea!
