This week’s question comes straight from the forum:

“With the rising living costs in the District, I’m curious what people would consider a “livable” salary in DC. Obviously many factors play into this, but let’s say for a single person.”

Like the OP says “many factors play into this” – so let’s say rent for a small 1 bed/studio or even a group house, student loans, plus drinks and/or dinner a couple nights a week/month, an occasional concert, movie etc. plus all the other regular sundries. What does that come out to for a yearly salary?

What makes up your definition of “livable”?
