Summary "This project is an attempt to measure the health of the middle class by doing original research, then going out into our community to find how the results of the data analysis matched real life in postindustrial Ohio. We found the middle class is shrinking - squeezed on two fronts by steadily decreasing earnings and dramatically increasing costs of the hallmarks of the middle class: home ownership, higher education, affordable health care and a secure retirement."
