Median income

Updated 11/15/18

Median family income divides the income distribution into two equal groups — one having incomes above the median and the other having incomes below the median.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development tracks median family income for Nevada to evaluate housing costs and affordability. The change in median family income shows if the typical family can keep up financially. Washoe County’s median family income increased 2.1% in 2017; compared to 4.4% for Nevada; and 4.0% for the US.
