Are You In The Middle Class In Minnesota? Here’s What You Need To Make
How much do you have to make to be considered middle class in Minnesota? Let's take a look at the numbers.
Using data from the 2020 Census, we're able to see what incomes were in cities across Minnesota. Middle-class income is considered to range between two-thirds of the median income and up to twice the median income. That's what Pew Research uses for their information. You can also check out their income calculator to see where you stand.
For the purpose of this article, I used the most recent data for populations in cities across Minnesota. This is according to worldatlas.com.
It's interesting to see how much middle-income ranges fluctuate from city to city. There clearly are more prosperous cities, most of them suburbs of Minneapolis or St. Paul.
These are only estimates. Data could be interpreted in different ways, but this is the clearest estimate I've been able to find.
