Definitions: Median household income.  The median income is the dollar amount that divides the income distribution into two equal groups, half with income above the median, half with income below it. A household includes all the persons who occupy a housing unit as their usual place of residence. A household may be a single family, one person living alone, two or more families living together, or any other group of related or unrelated persons who share living arrangements.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey (ACS) via American Fact Finder, Table S1903, 5-year estimates. 

Footnotes: Each year represents survey data collected over the course of five years; thus, 2017 estimates are derived from surveys collected between 2013-2017.  The Census Bureau recommends using non-overlapping periods for trend analysis (i.e. compare 2005-2009 with 2010-2014).
