Median Family Income, by Family Type (Regions of 10,000 Residents or More)
Definition: Estimated annual income at which half of families earn more and half of families earn less, by family type (e.g., among California families with children in 2013-2017, half had incomes above $70,892 and half had incomes below $70,892).
Footnote: Data are adjusted for inflation based on Consumer Price Index Research Series Using Current Methods (All items) adjustment factors, to enable comparisons over time. Families with children are those with sons or daughters by birth, marriage, or adoption. Data are displayed for geographies with at least 10,000 residents based on 2017 population estimates. These estimates are based on a survey of the population and are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. The notation S refers to estimates that have been suppressed because the margin of error was greater than 15 percent. N/A means that data are not available. Some regions listed are Census Designated Places (CDPs), such as East Los Angeles; CDPs are communities within the unincorporated part of a county. In 2010 the Census Bureau implemented new population benchmarks, so caution should be taken when comparing 2005-2009 data with later years.
