#tina on Jul 08, 2015 :
So incomes are lower than 2200 per month take home and rents are 1200-1500? Sounds like I won't be moving here anytime soon then.
#Rich on Jun 27, 2015 :
And @ mima it has nothing to do with being poor it's simply cheaper to live theirs tons of poor and homeless ppl in Chicago
#Rich on Jun 27, 2015 :
This other moron thinks that Indiana should raise taxes on tobacco their should've never been taxes in the first place why should we suffer because the government can't pay it's bills? Over all things are priced lower because it's easier to afford Indiana over let's say Chicago Chicago is ridiculous I don't know how people manage to live their I did but because I was in dcfs and they paid everything I'm moving out of Illinois period to Indiana because of morons who think we should suffer by inflation and raising prices for the Metra and pace cuts as well as raising prices for cta it's horrible how Chicago has become no wonder crime is rampant
#Sharona on Oct 08, 2014 :
Agreed ... The disposable income is ratioed too high. Maybe if your participators were located outside of Marion county in the suburb cities
They have disposable income for restaurants etc
Yet how about more localized; central Indianapolis, and lower incomed individuals should participate ?!
#bethany on Aug 08, 2014 :
@Mima it's not discussing the entire state, it's just looking at Indianapolis.
#john on Feb 11, 2014 :
cOULD someone tell me how much I should expect to pay for electricity if my apt heats with it as well as water and trash? Thanks.
#Mima on Jun 26, 2013 :
Uh, i'd say that disposable salery is much lower for avarege person, this is pretty poor state. Also, 3 bedroom appartment in city center or place like Broadripple is more $1.500-1.600, in Carmel $1.350.
