Paycheck to Paycheck is a free online database presenting 2011 wage information for more than 70 occupations and home prices and rents for more than 200 metropolitan areas. Michigan areas included in the database are Ann Arbor, Battle Creek, Bay City, Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Monroe, Saginaw and Warren.

Paycheck to Paycheck utilizes consistent measures of wages and housing costs so you can:

  • See how workers in your metropolitan area are faring in the housing market
  • View the big picture for housing affordability for working families in various occupations across the country
  • Use these analyses as a template to examine wages and housing costs in neighborhoods in your community

In a Paycheck to Paycheck press release issued July 21st, 2011, National Housing Conference President Maureen Friar said “Paycheck to Paycheck shows that job creation is only part of the answer for improving households’ economic prospects. Policies are also needed to ensure that housing is affordable for America’s working families.”
