FLASHBACK TO 1993

Where median income is concerned, Illinois in 2010 hit its lowest point in nearly two decades.

The median income is the income level above which half of the population falls and below which the other half of the population falls.

The U.S. Census Bureau released the 2010 state-level numbers earlier this month, listing Illinois’ median income at $50,761. Adjusting for inflation, that’s the lowest point for Illinois since 1993, when the median income was $48,820, and well below the 1999 high point of $60,625.

According to the American Community Survey, Sangamon County’s median income level for 2010 was $50,166.
