Median income in Baltimore region stays same

Household income in the Baltimore region hasn’t changed from the first full year after the recession, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The metro area’s 2013 median household income was $68,455, essentially the same as in 2010, which was $68,935 in 2013 dollars, say statistics from the bureau’s American Community Survey. The percentage of those below the poverty level also remained much the same — 11.2 percent in 2013 compared with 11.0 in 2010. There was a drop in the part of the population without health insurance — 8.7 percent, down from 10.1 in 2010.
