Household of one: Minimum of $72,126
Household of two: Minimum of $102,001
Household of three: Minimum of $124,925
Household of four: Minimum of $144,251
Household of five: Minimum of $161,277
Still, just because you fit into those parameters doesn’t necessarily mean you will feel upper-class.
This fails however to consider a regions cost of living such as Washington FC, New York City San Francisco or LA.
