MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME

The income where half of households in a county earn more and half of households earn less. Median household income is a well-recognized indicator of income and poverty.

Median household income is a frequently reported economic statistic. Because many households consist of a single person, median household income is usually less than median family income, another frequently reported economic statistic. A household consisting of a single person is not included in the average family income calculation. Looking at household income statistics is instructive when comparing affluence and living standards between different cities, states, or countries.
