In faculty recruitment, consider the cost of living and, for someone from Kansas, the high cost of leaving
Obviously, there are variations within California with more rural areas having lower costs. You can find an interactive map for metropolitan statistical areas at http://taxfoundation.org/blog/real-value-100-metropolitan-areas. None the less, the bulk of UC faculty live in areas with higher-than-average costs of living, a fact that can lead to understatement of salary lags.
