The cost for two parents and two children to live in Seattle has risen 13 percent in the last two years and for single people, it’s 19 percent more expensive, according to a University of Washington survey.

The Seattle P-I.com reports the study indicates it costs a single parent of two children in East King County $65,690 to meet basic needs, up 14 percent from 2009. Wahkiakum County in southwest Washington was the cheapest place to live — the same size family needed $32,997 for living expenses.
