This is an update to my post previously about income in the United States. Based on 111,617,402 households in the US as of 2006.
|Household Income, 2006||Total People||Percent|
|Less than $49,999||57,218,480||51%|
|$50,000 to $74,999||21,221,889||19%|
|$75,000 to $99,999||13,214,551||12%|
|$100,000 to $199,999||16,145,482||14%|
|$200,000 or more||3,817,000||3%|
It’s not much different than before. 82% of people make less than 100k in the household. Of course, in some locales, 100k is plenty to thrive. However, 200k+ is not all that much. To have only 3% make that much, even including two parents working, is surprising. I thought there would be more.
Look at the African America households by comparison. Much bleaker:
