Living Wage Calculator


This tool from MIT allows users to explore the living wage in their county or metropolitan area. Families and individuals working in low-wage jobs make insufficient income to meet minimum standards given the local cost of living. This tool estimates the cost of living in your community or region based on typical expenses, and helps individuals, communities, and employers determine a local wage rate that allows residents to meet minimum standards of living.
