What do you consider a high yearly income for one person?

50k, 80k, 150k????? I consider a high income anything over 70k per year.

  • $70,000 is nothing in NY but you can live very well on it in Houston. It really depends on where you live. That's hard to generalize

  • It isn't just a number. It depends where that person lives. The cost of living is different from area to area.

  • Thanks, but where I am $70,000 would be amazing for a single person.

  • Sad to say but for a woman, $80K and for a man around 200K, but I live in a big city.

  • I would agree with both of you. 70 except for in those real big places. I don't know how normal people live there. So much money for such little spaces.

  • I only make 16k for 3 people so, yeah, 70k would be amazing.

  • Oh and I live in a small city where you do not even need coupons because every thing is so darn cheap.

  • I guess you're right Tyfry... 70k a year isn't a lot in NY or CA.

  • I can't answer based on income alone. A high income could be $40,000 if that person has no debt and a low income could be $200,000 if that person spends beyond their means. I would need the ratio to come up with an answer. (I'm an analyst so I always have to look at the whole picture; numbers mean nothing unless you start relating them to eachother).
