What is enough? By comparing occupational wage rates in Monmouth County with standard of living indexes based on Monmouth County prices, this presentation will help you identify careers that provide a self-sufficient income without private or public assistance.

The program is based on statistics from the Poverty Research Institute of New Jersey and Bureau of Labor Statistics. Family budget estimates vary according to family composition and include budgeting for housing, childcare, food, transportation, and taxes.
