Freelancer Salary
assembled in by @fluorodynamics

Ever wonder what the equivalent freelancing rate to any given full-time salary is when evaluating offers?

$ annual salary @ hours per week
= $50/hr raw
+ $7,000/yr self-employment tax @ %
+ $7,200/yr health insurance ($/mo)
+ $14,000/yr in days off ( holidays , vacation days , sick days )
= $64/hr equivalent rate

This is obviously just the baseline, the equivalent of what you'd make in the same position if you were salaried with benefits. Please take into account the additional risks and costs occured by freelancing, e.g. the increased risk of unemployment, time and resources to acquire clients, marketing, educating yourself, and so on.
