US Census Bureau Document S1901, entitled INCOME IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS (IN 2010 INFLATION-ADJUSTED DOLLARS), shows 11.8% of households having an income of $100,000-149,999, 4.2% making $150,000-$199,999, and 3.9% making over $200,000. For non-family households, only 5.1% earn from $100,000-$149,999, 1.5% earn from $150,000-$199,999, and 1.4% earn over $200,000.

Summing these percentages, we find that 19.9% of households make $100,000 or more, and 8% of non-family households earn over $100,000 per year.

Notes: The majority of those making over $100,000 per year fall into the $100-149,999 category. However, due to increases in the cost of living, a person would need to make $172,103 today in order to have the same purchasing power as someone making $100,000 in 1990.
