They manipulated these statistics pretty badly. I've lived off minimum wage in two of these states and my apartments weren't 2.5 times my wages. I even owned a house in California while making $19 an hour. And this was two years ago. Mortgage was $1,300 month, PIMI. Apartments in my area were between $650 for low end, and $1,800 for luxury places. Don't live in luxury places if you can't afford it...

Don't live in places you can not afford, or don't waste money in stupid shit.
