Median Household Income By State 2020

The results of the Census ACS survey reveals the average income for people in the United States. Many factors can influence the median household income across the nation during a given year. From the job market and the ratio of costs to profits, to the state of the economy and everything else in between, average household income rates fluctuate.

The amount of money that people bring into their households is directly correlated with the national economy, so depending upon the relationship between these two variables, median household income will either rise or fall from one year to the next. Let's take a look at the average household income rates over the past few years.

Also, every state has residents who would be considered outliers when reviewing the results of the ACS survey conducted by the Census Bureau. In order to keep the results of the survey accurate, people who are extremely wealthy, as well as people who are living at or below poverty, are omitted from the final findings of the survey. Otherwise, the report would not accurately reflect the median household income. Instead, the very large incomes and the very minimal incomes would offset the average.

The percent of change between annual household income rates over the years will give you an idea as to how the economy of the country was at that time.
