Median Household Incomes by Age Bracket: 1967-2019

Summary:
[unable to retrieve full-text content] We have updated our commentary on household income distribution to include the Census Bureau's release of the 2019 annual data. Our focus was on arithmetic mean (average) household incomes by quintile (and the top 5%) over the 50+ year history of this data series. The analysis offered some fascinating insights into U.S. household incomes. But the classification misses the implications of age for income. Households are by no means locked into the same quintile over time.
