    Also state what area you're from if you're only talking about your area.

    not much, but there is no exact number. generally, a middle class citizen owns a house, even if they have dept, and have a somewhat sturdy foundation economical. unfortunately, George Bush destroyed middle class :(

    Middle class is an illusion of people with good credit allowing them to buy all the things they own with leverage ( debt ). You could be middle class if you can buy a 3br 1ba house, new car and have a full time job all on credit.

    Income has nothing to do with the status of a person. Some people are millionaires and live like middle class other people are middle class and try to live as millionaires with debt all over.

    Depends on how many people that income needs to support. For a family of 4 on the West Coast you would need approximately $80,000 per year would make you lower middle class.
