This database includes median family income estimates (MFI's), shown in dollars, established by HUD.  Data generally relfect April of each year.  Income data are shown by county and associated metropolitan area.  Some counties are aggregated into metropolitan areas.  In these cases, data reported reflect metropolitan area median income, not that for a member county. For example, in the case of California, income data reported for San Mateo County reflects the San Francisco metropolitan area (San Francisco, Marin, and San Mateo counties) median income, not that for an individual county.


Median income estimates are based on decennial Census data, Census Current Population Surveys (CPS), American Community Surveys (ACS) for changes to state-level income, and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data for county-level changes to wages.
