Average web developer salary by state

…and adjusted by cost of living index.

You won’t see New York or California in the top 10 of this list. This list uses the average web developer salary by state along with a state’s cost of living index in order to rank the best states to live in if you are earning a web developer salary.

Nationally, the average web developer salary is $77,622. You can check if your state’s web developer salary is above or below the average. Top 5 states included Texas, Virginia, Utah, Illinois and Wyoming while the bottom 5 states were Hawaii, Rhode Island, Vermont, Connecticut, and Montana. The big tech hubs, California and New York, had average web developer salaries that landed them in the #23 and #32 spots respectively.

A couple things to keep in mind as you read this 1) this doesn’t take into account factors like Quality of Life in those states 2) web developers are in demand just about anywhere so don’t let this list deter you in any way from becoming a web developer.

The data used here was taken from the 2016 cost of living index from the Missouri Department of Economic Development and the average web developer salary data was from indeed.com.
