Definitions: This indicator presents median family income for families with own children age 18 or younger present. The median family income is based on the annual income of all members within the family. The median income is the dollar amount at which half of all families in the area have more income and half have less. The state-level and county-level figures reported here are one-year estimates. All figures appear in inflation-adjusted dollars for that year.

Data Source: The data used for this measure come from the American Community Survey (ACS) conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. Data can be found through “American Fact Finder."  Data were retrieved on April 7, 2014 from http://factfinder2.census.gov/. (Table B19125)

The Census Bureau makes the ACS one-year estimates at county-level available for counties with populations of 65,000 or more. “N.A.” therefore indicates data unavailability due to small county population size.

Footnotes: Data last updated in April 2014 by Washington KIDS COUNT.

The U.S. Census Bureau often revises previous estimates. Therefore, figures presented here may be different from figures presented elsewhere.

A family includes a householder and one or more people living in the same household who are related to the householder by birth, marriage, or adoption. All people in a household who are related to the householder are regarded as members of his or her family. According to the ACS subject definitions guide (http://www.census.gov/acs/www/UseData/Def.htm) a household contains only one family in the published tabulations.

An own child is a never-married child less than 18 years of age who is a son or daughter by birth, a stepchild, or an adopted child living with one or more of their parents.
