Description

The 11th edition of American Incomes: Demographics of Who Has Money is your map to the changing consumer landscape, exploring and explaining the economic status of Americans in the aftermath of the Great Recession. It looks at household income trends through 2014 by age, household type, race and Hispanic origin, education, region, and work status; examines trends in the incomes of men and women by a variety of demographic characteristics; and provides data on the wealth of American households, showing the impact of the Great Recession on household assets and debt. The poverty population is also a focus of American Incomes.

The five chapters in American Incomes are:

  1. Household Income
    Chapter 1 examines trends in household income over the past 14 years. It also presents current household income statistics by age of householder, race and Hispanic origin of householder, type of household, and other important demographic characteristics.

  3. Women’s Income

  4. Wealth
    The statistics shown in Chapter 4, from the Federal Reserve Board’s Survey of Consumer Finances, provide a comprehensive portrait of the assets, debts, and net worth of American households by a variety of demographic characteristics. This chapter also examines the 2007-to-2013 trends in wealth.
  5. Poverty

In Praise of . . .
The first edition of this book was a Library Journal Best Reference Source.

American Incomes does an admirable job of interpreting what the census data demonstrate in terms that are easily understandable to the average researcher, while also attending to the needs of business researchers and public policymakers who will find this easily accessible source of demographic information invaluable. . . this reference work will be of great use to those in search of a quick and easy alternative to the drudgery and confusion inherent in combing through reams of census data.”
