Regional Income and Poverty Measures By Municipality

The American Communities Survey (ACS) provides more timely updates to data for planning and grant purposes than the decennial census releases of the past. The ACS, which is released in three different formats annually (one year, three year, and five year estimates, depending on the size of the area you are looking at), includes data on income and poverty measures. Below are tables for Herkimer and Oneida Counties which contain three standard income measures ( median household, median family, and per capita income), as well as several poverty measures (overall persons, persons under age 5, persons under age 18, and persons age 65 or older in poverty. These come from the 2011 Five Year ACS Estimates. Click on either table to see it in a larger format.
