Self-Sufficiency Standard is released every two years, it includes information on the cost of making ends meet for 7 different family configurations in every county in the state. However, the Standard goes far beyond those 7 families. Numbers for 70 different family types are compiled as part of the research each time the Standard is created.
You can now find the spreadsheet for those families on this blog. Please take a moment to view the Standard and the different family configurations to learn more about what it takes to be self-sufficient in Pennsylvania.
