Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Austin TX Spends Second Most on Electronics

Austin TX Spends Second Most on Electronics

Austin TX ranks second on the Top 10 Cities of How America Spends on Electronics.  That's a lot of stereo equipment and computer stuff... but Austin is known for their technology sector.

On average, Austin TX is spending $78.50 a month on electronics behind San Jose CA spending $91.08.  The US Average is a mere $48.00 a month. YIKES!

Electronic spending in AUstin TX

What I find interesting, as you look at the chart, is that Single Males with no kids spend more than Married Couples with no Kids. Is this because when guys are single they don't care about how they spend their money, but when they get married, they're more consious about it because of the potential "nagging wife"?

I also find it interesting that except for the over 65 group, as someone gets older, they spend more on electronics. I would have thought that was different, but I'm in the group of people who could really careless about so much electronic stuff and only have what I have because my Engineer husband is here in Austin TX.

Maybe single men find company in their electronics. I can never get enough of the tech stuff.

Interesting statistics. We have enough technology in our house to turn us all insane when we have a power outage, but yet MD is not even getting a mention. Your little guys will add you to the stats before long!
