(Numbers in thousands. People 25 years old and over as of March of the following year. A.O.I.C. stands for alone or in combination. Beginning with 2009 income data, the Census Bureau expanded the income intervals used to calculate medians and Ginis to $250,000 or more. Medians falling in the upper open-ended interval are plugged with "$250,000." Before 2009, the upper open-ended interval was $100,000 and a plug of "$100,000" was used)
