Unexpectedly Intriguing!

What is the median income earned by individual Americans in each U.S. state? And how does your income compare to it?

We can help you answer one of those questions! On 9 April 2024, the U.S. Census Bureau released its Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics data for incomes earned by individual Americans in May 2023. We extracted the data for the median (and average) incomes earned by individuals employed in all occupations for each of the fifty states and created the following interactive map to present it. If you're accessing this article on a site that republishes our RSS news feed, you may need to click through to our site to access a working version.

We'll be discussing the April 2024 estimates for median household income for the entire United States in the near future, but if you're okay with spoilers, Motio Research has already reported their estimate for April 2024 is $78,230.
