Self-sufficiency measures how much income a family needs to adequately meet its basic needs (housing, child care, food, transportation, health care, and taxes) without public or private assistance. Shown on the map are 2010 self-sufficiency wages based on a one parent/one pre-school aged child family. The chart compares these to occupational wages from 2011, which do not include benefits.
