We let you in on the median income of those considered middle class across U.S. states. But what's the minimum you have to earn to be a part of this shrinking income tier?
Pew Research Center, which defines a middle class household income as two-thirds to double the national median ($55,775 as of 2016), provided CNBC with data for all 50 states and Washington, D.C., for various household sizes.
It's important to note that there's more to class than income — class can also be defined by net worth, education and occupation, for example — but household income can be a useful tool with which to sort.
Here's the full breakdown of how much money one-, three-, and five-person families have to earn to be considered middle class throughout the country.
Household of one: $21,085 to $63,254
Household of three: $36,519 to $109,558
Household of five: $47,147 to $141,439
