American Incomes

"The 10th edition of American Incomes: Demographics of Who Has Money explores and explains the economic status of Americans. It looks at household income trends by age, household type, race and Hispanic origin, education, region, and work status. It examines trends in the incomes of men and women by a variety of demographic characteristics. It includes an analysis of discretionary income, produced by New Strategist’s statisticians specifically for this book. It provides the latest data on the wealth of American households. The poverty population is also a focus of American Incomes.

Most of the tables in American Incomes are based on data from the March 2008 Current Population Survey of about 60,000 households, who are asked about their demographic characteristics and income in the preceding year. This survey is the best source of up-to-date, reliable information on the incomes of Americans. The New Strategist editors and statisticians compiled each table in American Incomes, adding where necessary historical data and calculations so you can instantly understand the trends without having to do the work yourself."
