This report examines shares of household income by focusing on which combinations of demographics, work effort, and level of education generate the largest amounts of income. It emphasizes the interplay between number of households, mean household income, and share of income and how these vary by presence of children, marital status of the household head, and age, work effort, and education of the head and spouse. In addition, the report presents estimates for a broad array of household characteristics including home ownership, presence of mortgages, numbers of children, changes in residence (movers), median and mean incomes, etc. for a selected group of 300 metropolitan areas and 375 counties.
This report is based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS). Using two data files from the ACS, each based on 3.5 million interviewed households, we compare the level of household income for the three-year time period before the recent recession (2005-2007) with the three-year time period during and after the recession (2008-2010). The comparisons are made for the four regions, the nine divisions, the 50 states and the District of Columbia, and 297 individual metropolitan areas. It includes number of households, median household income, and the income levels defining the top 1-percent.
