CHART: Here's what a middle class salary looks like in Michigan

Posted By on Fri, Apr 3, 2015 at 12:47 PM

A recent post on the Pew Charitable Trusts' Stateline blog outlines the upper and lower ends of the middle class in every state in the U.S, and concludes that the middle class has gotten small across the nation between 2000 and 2013.

In the blog post, Pew defines the "middle class" as households earning between 67 and 200 percent of a state's average income. So what does that look like in Michigan, exactly?

Well our pals over at Business Insider have crunched the numbers based on Pew's data and spit out a chart to answer that very question. See below:
