How much money can you make in a year, How Much Money Can You Make on YouTube?
How much money do you need to earn a year to be considered rich? And how little must someone earn to be considered poor?
YouGov put a range of income levels to the public and asked whether or not a person making that much money was rich, poor or neither. Income milestones and tax thresholds As perceptions of rich and poor could be so important in informing tax policy, we also tested attitudes to incomes at the entry point of each federal income tax bracket. Similarly, given that the aim of minimum wage legislation is to guarantee a minimum acceptable living standard, we have also examined how Americans see both the minimum wage rate and the average income.
How rich or poor do Americans consider themselves to be? We also asked whether Americans considered themselves to be rich or poor.
These are not objective measures of course — it may well be the case that many people who are technically poor do not consider themselves so because of the negative connotations associated with the term. This effect has been observed previously. The results of the survey bear this out. The higher an income someone is on, the less likely they are to say that earning a certain amount makes a person rich.
