SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A new calculator shows how much families need to make to be able to afford the cost of living in San Diego.
According to the Economic Policy Institute, a family of four (two adults and two children) would need to make an average of just over $97,000 per year to be able to afford to live in San Diego County.
The calculator estimates community-specific costs and can be changed to budget for different family types from one or two adults with zero to four children.
