The living wage calculator for Guilford County, constructed by MIT, estimates the cost of living based on typical expenses, the living wage and typical wages for the county. The poverty rate has been converted to an hourly wage for comparison to both the minimum wage and the living wage based on household size. The  tabulations for Guilford County reveal consistent disparities between the living wage and the poverty and minimum wages.
