Median household income refers to the point at which half of all household incomes are higher and half are lower –

 

like the median is in the middle of a road.

 

While the American Community Survey (ACS) contains estimates of median household income, county and other local level estimates from the ACS often refer to multiple years. Annual estimates of median household income are available through the U. S. Census Bureau’s Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates (SAIPE) program (http://www.census.gov/hhes/www/saipe/).

 

 

 

Data from the Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates (SAIPE) program include a range for each estimate. This tells us the range within which the estimate most likely falls.

For ease of use, these confidence interval ranges have been converted to a margin of error and rounded to the nearest dollar. If you have seen poll results on the news, when they say “plus or minus 5 points” (+/- 5) they are telling you the margin of error.

Since the margin of error tells us how reliable the estimate is, it is important to

always report the margin of error

For help in understanding margins of error, see : "And Now for the Grain of Salt: Margins of Error and the American Community Survey" http://www.ca.uky.edu/snarl/KentuckyByTheNumbers/KYBTNPublications/KYBTNPublications.htm
