The homes where I lived in SoCal that where being lived in by 1 income middle class families in the 60s are not affordable to 2 income, let alone 1 income, families of today, even with the same standard of living. Which proves my premise from my first post, depends where you live.
Your graph is not showing SoCal numbers.
