American Incomes: Demographics of Who Has Money, 8th edition

448 Pages New Strategist Publications, Inc. December 01, 2011 SKU: NW6717634

The eighth edition of American Incomes: Demographics of Who Has Money explores and explains the economic status of Americans in the aftermath of the Great Recession. It looks at household income trends through 2010 by age, household type, race and Hispanic origin, education, region, and work status. It examines trends in the incomes of men and women by a variety of demographic characteristics. It includes an analysis of discretionary income, produced by New Strategist's statisticians specifically for this book. It provides the latest 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.

Most of the tables in American Incomes are based on data from the March 2011 Current Population Survey of about 60,000 households, who are asked about their demographic characteristics and income in the preceding year. This survey is the best source of up-to-date, reliable information on the incomes of Americans. The New Strategist editors and statisticians compiled each table in American Incomes, adding where necessary historical data and calculations so you can instantly understand the trends without having to do the work yourself.

The six chapters in American Incomes are:

1.Household Income

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

2.Men's Income Trends

Current income statistics for men are shown by a variety of demographic characteristics including education, occupation, and work status.

3.Women's Income

Examines trends and the current status of women's income, which has become increasingly important to family economic well-being over the past few decades.

4.Discretionary Income

Found only in American Incomes, the statistics show that most American households have money to spend after paying taxes and buying necessities but not as much as they did a few years ago.


These statistics, most of them from the Federal Reserve's one-of-a-kind Survey of Consumer Finances, provide a comprehensive portrait of the assets, debts, and net worth of American households.


Poverty is on the rise, and this chapter reveals the demographic characteristics of who is falling behind.
