In the DFW area how much would a family have to earn to be considered Upper middle class
I guess Middle Middle class
Lower middle class

I am not looking for facts and figures I am just looking for opinion from the board

I would estimate $80-110k for a "typical" family of four- 3-4 br home in a suburb, 2 cars, 1 family vacation a year (domestic travel). Enough money to cover the basic needs, a few extras (math tutor or cheerleading fees) and save enough for state school tuition.

Would also say that most "middle class" families in Dallas area seem to be dual income.
