What kind of feedback are you soliciting? Do you want to know why we think your methodology is flawed? I don't think you should be fitting straight lines when your sample size is so small for one. The lines don't look like good fits.

What about your hourly pay? Are you assuming a 40 hour work week or you using average hours worked by city? What about supplemental income? I suspect there are a lot of rich people in expensive cities that don't have to work much because of other income sources. Or are you using salary divided by actual numbers of hours worked. I suspect some countries have shorter number of hours worked per week on average.

Are you including the metropolitan area or is it strictly the city? Realize some people work in the city and live in the suburbs and visa versa.
