Living Wage data from 2019 https://livingwage.mit.edu/states/16
Note - since originally completing this credit in January 2021, the Living Wage calculator has changed and updated with a new living wage. Because our report is using data from 2019 and 2020, we will use the original data that was listed on the Living Wage Calculator from 2019. We reached out to AASHE and Crystal Simmons said that this was alright so long as we noted the discrepancy.

The information presented here is self-reported. While AASHE staff review portions of all STARS reports and institutions are welcome to seek additional forms of review, the data in STARS reports are not verified by AASHE. If you believe any of this information is erroneous or inconsistent with credit criteria, please review the process for inquiring about the information reported by an institution and complete the Data Inquiry Form.
