Even in forums like this we do either or discussions and polls for example:

Percentage of people with family pension income over 75k

Percentage of people with family SS income over 50k

Percentage of people with family investments over 500k

Those three data points taken individually tell us little and taken together tell us not much more. Simply we don't know how many have all three and how many have none.

Amen to that! My sister does fine on about 25k. She owns her condo, so her normal expenses are manageable. And she does't just sit around staring at the walls; her next trip is going to be to London.

Excellent point. If only everyone headed this. The people who need it the most wont even recognize themselves as part of the problem.
