ATLANTA (AP) - A new report shows a single mother in Fayette
County would have to earn over $42,000 a year - the highest amount
in the state - to avoid needing government assistance.

The report released by the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute
Monday looks at what families must earn in each county to be
self-sufficient.

Fayette County had the state's highest standard for a single
parent, at $42,086. The lowest was in Baker County. There, one
parent with one child could get by on $20,280.

The group hopes state officials may use the report to help
determine guidelines for public assistance.
