When you consider that 90% of San Diego jobs pay less than $10 an hour, you wonder how people can afford to live there? Staggering.

Appalling, too.

Interesting that home values have fallen about 40% since peaking out in late 2005, but the median price is still $335,600, third highest among the top 25 metro areas. Compare that figure with the median income figures: $31,000 per capita, $63,000 per household and you see once again that San Diegans are really squeezed. Best, Don Bauder

San Diego's median personal income is $30,715 and median household income a bit above $63,000. So you can see that rents take a big bite out of income. Best, Don Bauder
