To determine the inflated Poverty Line Prices, we took the average price of Bay Area necessities and calculated the percentage of take-home pay each item would represent for a family living on the poverty line earning $24,300. After taxes, that's $22,222.
For example, eggs represent 1.4% of the average weekly income for a family living on a poverty line income. The percentage of salary required to purchase each item was then applied to the average San Francisco take-home salary.
If eggs cost $6 for someone living on the poverty line, or 1.4% of their weekly salary, the adjusted price would be $29.64 for someone living on the average San Francisco salary.
