That depends on how you define "average" and how you define "Income." Economists commonly use the median, which divides the population in half, as their average figure. According to the US Census Bureau in 2005: The median household income was roughly $46,000. The median annual earnings for someone in the labor force age 25 or older were $32,000. The median household per capita income, the amount of money households are able to allocate to each of their memebers, was $24,000.
