Comparing Five Year Estimates of Median Income for Households

A comparison of municipalities' median household income changes between 2009 and 2014 shows that only six municipalities show actual income growth in the region. The chart below shows the six municipalities and compares their median household incomes found in the 2009 Five Year ACS estimates with those in the newly released 2014 Five Year Estimates. These are the only areas in the region where household income, after being adjusted for inflation, has shown significant growth between the two five year periods.
