I know everyone has their own opinion on this and it is different in different places. But what do you think are the social class ranges in dollar terms in the Cincinnati area?

Lower Class =
Working Class =
Middle Class =
Upper Middle =
Wealthy =


Also do you think the Cincinnati area is a good place for your working class amount to get by fairly well?

I couldn't put #'s on it ... but if your basic question is about cost of living ...

yes, I still think Cincinnati (the whole region) has a reasonable cost of living. Housing is still much more affordable than many other parts of the country, and food/gas/utility costs here are not abominable.


That said, whatever $ amount you assign to it - it's always a bit easier to get by if you're towards the "wealthy" range.

The question was inelegantly phrased, but particularly in terms of housing I think Cincinnati is pretty affordable for people with modest or limited incomes. And housing is probably THE major expense for most people.

Cincinnati has a reputation for offering affordable housing for all income ranges. Basic research will bear this out. Seems like a pointless question. Would have made more sense if the OP simply asked about housing prices for people at their specific income range.

Agreed. All this post does is point out how pointlessly provincial this city can be. And with that it does a great job. A h3ll of a lot of morons live in this city, and most all of them are provincial @ssholes.

And this is no dig at you personally...but where do all these 'morons' and 'a**holes' hang out?

Can Cincinnati be provincial sometimes? Yeah...I live in Middletown and work and play in Cincinnati and Dayton, and sometimes said provincialism has reared its ugly head

But does that make Cincinnati and SW Ohio in total a bad place to live, no matter WHAT social class or political stratum (for the record I'm a Democrat) you occupy?

I'm gonna say no, from the heart

That's fine, I understand, I'm painting with a broad brush. I'll do more detail later when I have time, for now what I can say is that it's more of a cross-sectional attitude rather than confined to any one space or group.

This reveals more about you than we wanted to know, even though we may have needed to. It is amazing that someone who openly expresses such an unqualified and disdainful attitude towards Cincinnati can be proclaimed a "threadmaster". I'm both shocked and disappointed.
