Latest Affordability Index for Marin

Well, Marin County's affordability index has slipped to 10% according to this report. Way to go Marin! Well done. Pat yourself on the back. We'll shut out the riffraff yet. We will achieve yuppie Nirvanadom if it kills us. Who needs a working class? Who needs working families with children? And maybe all the businesses that don't already cater to us will leave for greener pastures too. Hey! Maybe if we don't improve our infrastructure no one will want to move here either! Yeah, that's it. Oh, no, wait...we tried that 30 years ago and look where it got us.

I'm sure glad no one sees a problem with this; too busy counting our coins.

How do they calculate Income? Survey? Tax records?

What do you think it is??? Some sort of "planned conspiracy"? It seems to me to be much more supply and demand. A lot like Carmel/Pebble Beach, Santa Barbara, Manhattan, etc.
