Notes:  Bureau of Labor Statistics provides average annual wages for industry sectors. Annual wages are converted to hourly wages by dividing by 2000 (assumes 40-hour work week, 50 weeks per year).

Statewide FMRs come from the National Low Income Housing Coalition's Out of Reach report and are averages weighted by the number of renters in each county.
