Mine would be lower then that. Half of my 12 families are low income, state assistance, single parents, minimum wage job.

The other half are married, both working but not sure of income.

I said 91, 000 - $110,000 but I'm guessimating their income based on how much the average for their jobs is locally.

ETA: I do look for 2 income professional households when I'm interviewing although it isn't a necessity.

I said 51-70k but I honestly have no clue. Two of them are 2 income families, the third is a struggling single mom who doesn't get child support. So...the low end of this range I'd wager.

I went with 91-110k - but I really have NO CLUE, I'm sure some are higher and one or two of my current families are probably lower. I don't even know what some of my parents do for a living - I know WHERE they work for contact info but don't know their title/position and how much it pays would be a mystery to me as I haven't job hunted in about 15 years!!

My clients median income is $64,000 (with the highest being $72,000). All of my clients have college degrees, too. All but one family have 2+ children.

The estimated stabilization of the economy for our State is 2017, at the earliest....

(If you don't know the actual income of your clients you can google the median income for your zipcode.)

My zipcode median income is $43,000 for a family of 4.

My clients median income is $57,000. Equal mix of 1 or 2 children. Also equal mix of college degrees and non-degreed parents.

The non-degreed parents work for several mainstay/supportive factories or companies in town.

The estimated stabilization of our state's economy is apparently so far off that all our state data site says is what WON'T be ok and what budgets WON'T be balanced by 2014-2015

I already voted, but tried this and it said $35,000 was median income.

I'm not sure exactly but I do know thay all make over six figures.
All my families are college graduates with a two income family.
Not that a college education helps anymore in Michigan
My husband has a civil engineering degree and has been laid off for a year.
We DO NOT make six figures

I voted $51-$70k but this is only a guess.

I have 2 families that probably make somewhere in that vicinity.

I have another family that probably is lucky to make $40k and I have 2 other families that I'm sure make more than $100k a year.

I have three families. All are duel income households. I'm certain that all of my families make a combined household income of $90K-$130K.
