Why Is This Important?
Income is strongly related to health status. Low-income persons tend to have poorer health status, in part because they cannot always afford good health care. However, some people have low income levels because chronic mental or physical illness limits their ability to complete educational goals and/or earn a good income.
Median annual household income is the income level at which half of all households' income is lower, and half of all households' income is higher. Values are current dollars (not inflation-adjusted).
