Islands of High Income

Median household income varies by county across the United States. Predominantly rural counties across parts of the South, Southwest, Midwest, and Appalachia have some of the lower median incomes in the country. Counties with higher estimated median household incomes are generally located in the Boston-to-Washington corridor, in larger metropolitan statistical areas, and along the coasts. This data visualization demonstrates variations in median household income at the county level using data from the American Community Survey.
