Below you can calculate your Budget with the EPI’s Family Budget Calculator.
The EPI’s Family Budget Calculator measures the income a family needs in order to attain a modest yet adequate standard of living.
The budgets estimate community-specific costs for 10 family types (one or two adults with zero to four children) in all counties and metro areas in the United States.
Compared with the federal poverty line and the Supplemental Poverty Measure, EPI’s family budgets provide a more accurate and complete measure of economic security in America.
