We hear the word middle class all the time. It is a designation of an income level that seems to be hit the most when it comes to inflation and taxes, but how much money do you need to make to be considered 'Middle Class' in Arkansas?

There is a new report from gobanking.com rates that has the cold hard data of what you need to make to be considered middle class in all 50 states. This is what they had to say about the middle class in Arkansas.

Arkansas

2-person family middle-class income range: $35,087.23 to $104,738
3-person family middle-class income range: $38,855.31 to $115,986
4-person family middle-class income range: $46,507.38 to $138,828

If you look that is some pretty big ranges of salaries. With these numbers, we can see that most of us in Arkansas are living in the middle class. Oh, and if you are curious this is what they had to say about the middle class in Texas.

Texas

2-person family middle-class income range: $43,321.53 to $129,318
3-person family middle-class income range: $47,581.39 to $142,034
4-person family middle-class income range: $54,994.94 to $164,164

As you can see there is not too much difference in what the middle class is considered in Texas and Arkansas. But what about those west coast folks in California?

California

2-person family middle-class income range: $50,117.34 to $149,604
3-person family middle-class income range: $54,870.99 to $163,794
4-person family middle-class income range: $62,647.68 to $187,008

Those numbers are alarmingly high. A two-person household in California can earn up to $74,000 a year each and will still be in the middle class. This is just another reason why it is way cheaper to live in the south.

So now that you have seen the numbers, are you in the middle class? With these big ranges of salaries, I figure most of us are in the middle class.
