Median Income of Families with Children

Data represent median income for families with own children in NH and the US. "Own children" include the householder's (head of the household) child or children by birth, marriage, or adoption.

Note that median household income in New Hampshire, in 2015, was $66,779. Median family income is typically higher than median household income because of the composition of households, which may consist of a person living alone or multiple unrelated individuals or families living together.

The median income is the dollar amount that divides the income distribution into two equal groups--half with income above the median, half with income below it.
