Average disposable income at $3000 is actually very fair. $3000/month translates to at least $36,000/year. Hello. That's not very impressive. But it is obviously far more than you lackluster individuals care to put forth the effort to make. Seriously, get an education, get a job, and quit bitching. Working at the mall is not a career, and living with your parents is no ones fault but yourself. I hate to break it to you. Get some motivation and make something of yourself.

Just my midwest $0.02.
#RJ on Dec 10, 2015 :
hahahaha, this is crap. Monthly disposable income is suppossed to be $3,000? Really? I work at a temp service just north of Denver, and just east of I-25. Im lucky to make $250 a week, which is $1,000 a month. The rent is so high here that I`ve been staying with family just to have a place to sleep. Prices have gone up the roof in the last 10 years.
#Anonymous on Nov 08, 2015 :
My disposable monthly income is 3500$, but I think that's definitely in the higher 50%. Based on what most of my friends (25-35 years old) earn, half of which are not necessarily skilled/office types, I think 2000 to 2250$ a month is average for Denver. C'mon guys, that's a $33,000 salary before taxes. Definitely average, considering a low-level clerk makes easy 25,000$ and an entry-level professional is on average above 40k. These prices seem accurate, but rents seem a bit high. I live in central Denver and pay under 1000$ for a 1BR including utilities. You only pay 1800$ for a 1BR if you live in LoDo or LoHi in a new construction.
#bob on Nov 04, 2015 :
The average income is for poor people like you, as well as the people who actually do skilled labor. It's an average. I live in Denver, and make more than your monthly income in a day.
#Jessica894 on Jun 20, 2015 :
My disposable income should be $3000? HAHAHAHA!!!!! No, I work full time retail a little above minimum wage and I make like $900 a month after taxes are taken out.

I still live with my parents because the average rent for a studio is like $700, and by making only $900 I don't make anywhere NEAR enough to live on my own.

This chart is BS

Don´t be unfair guys... this helps and it´s a more or less good reference to people that want to have an idea of prices
#noname on Sep 18, 2014 :
where do they get these amounts? This is NOT Denver, CO, avg. disposable income over $3000.00. Hello, most don't even make that much a month. What is up here? Good luck to anyone that comes here expecting to find these jobs that pay this well. You will though, find the rents this high. They are trying to call it supply and demand, it's truly just greed. If there is such a demand, then why are there so many apartments for rent?

Public transport: An actual Local Monthly Pass costs $79 now.
#Anonymous on Mar 08, 2014 :
and you can click "switch to imperial measurements at the top.. lets use our eyes people
#Chandler on Mar 08, 2014 :
that price for gas is up to date. if you convert the liters to gallons, then its $3.53 a gallon.
#Stoney Green on Feb 27, 2014 :
I think that the cost of gasoline is quite outdated! I can't remember the last time that I paid less than a dollar for a liter of gasoline!
#Lawrence on Feb 25, 2014 :
This really helps a lot, NOT! Since I live in the USA, and this city is in the USA, We don't use the metric scale here!
