Political Calculations’ initial estimate of median household income of in October 2020 is $66,066, an increase of 0.6% above the initial estimate of $65,630 for September 2020.

Median Household Income in the 21st Century: Nominal and Real Modeled Estimates, January 2000 to October 2020

The chart confirms an upward trajectory for median household income in both nominal and inflation-adjusted terms, point to the ongoing recovery from the bottom of the coronavirus recession.

Analyst’s Notes

Significant upward revisions were made to the BEA’s aggregate personal wage and salary income data from April 2020 (+0.4%) through September 2020 (+1.4%). The changes were such that we’re now showing July 2020 as the bottom for the coronavirus recession-related decline of median household income, which now we now estimate to be $65,857 based on the BEA’s revised data. This is a 1.2% decline from the pre-recession peak of $66,654 recorded for March 2020.

Other Analyst’s Notes

Sentier Research suspended reporting its monthly Current Population Survey-based estimates of median household income, concluding their series with data for December 2019 before ceasing to operate in early 2020, as its principals would appear to have permanently retired. In their absence, we are providing the estimates from our alternate methodology for estimating median household income on a monthly basis. Our data sources are presented in the following section.
