Distribution of adults by income tier in U.S. metropolitan areas, 2016

Distribution of adults by income tier in U.S. metropolitan areas, 2016
Note: Middle-income adults live in households with incomes two-thirds to double the national median size-adjusted household income, about $45,200 to $135,600 annually in 2016 for a three-person household. Lower-income households have incomes less than two-thirds of the median, and upper-income households have incomes that are more than double the median. Household incomes are adjusted for the cost of living in metropolitan areas. Estimates are presented for 260 of about 380 metropolitan areas in the U.S. as defined by the federal government in 2013. The national estimate encompasses the U.S. adult population, including people outside of the sample of 260 metropolitan areas.
