2010 Median Household & Individual Income – Asian Americans Top The List

According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2010 American Community Survey (ACS) for 1-Year, Asian Americans had the highest Median Household Income out of any major race/ethnic population group. The median income amount for Asian households was $67,142. This amount was over $17,000 more than the median household income for the total population, which was $50,046. Median Asian household income was over twice the amount as well as $33,000 more than the median income of African American households ($33,568).

White Americans fared better than the country total population amount with a median household income of $54,168. They were followed by the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander population with $53,574. The bottom three major race/ethnic population groups were Hispanic or Latino at $40,165, American Indian and Alaskan Native at 34,821, and African American with the lowest at $33,568.

Those who self-identified themselves as another race came in at $50,670 while those that considered themselves to be of multiple racial groups (having two or more races) came in at $44,324.

The median income ranking changes slightly when the Median “Individual” Income amounts are reviewed. The same 2010 ACS 1-Year survey has Asian Americans still at the top of the list with a median individual income of $44,577. Median Asian individual income was almost $20,000 more than the median Hispanic or Latino individual income amount. Asians were followed this time by Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders with $37,791. The third major race/ethnic group was White Americans at $34,669.

The ACS survey revealed that the bottom three race/ethnic population groups for median individual income were: African Americans who moved from last place with Median Household Income to third from the bottom at $25,462; American Indian and Alaskan Native with $24,641; and finally Hispanic or Latino, who were this time the lowest, with $24,282.

Once again those who self-identified themselves as another race were in the middle with $30,085 while those that considered themselves to be of multiple racial groups were slightly below the total population ($30,085) with an amount of $26,481.
