Notes: Asian households have the highest median household incomes, of $75,910, reports Geoscape in its latest annual American Marketscape DataStream (AMDS) report. In fact, more than one-third (36.3%) of Asian & Pacific Islander households have incomes of at least $100,000, almost triple the share of Hispanic households (13.3%) with that amount and almost quadruple the share of Black households (11.5%).
Overall, the Asian household income median is about one-third higher than the national median (of $55,080), with Hispanics about one-fifth lower ($43,970) and Blacks one-third lower ($36,280).
Due to their remaining lifespans (average life expectancy – median adult age) and high spending, Asians will spend the most in terms of their remaining average household cumulative lifetime spending. Hispanics are next, trailed by non-Hispanic Whites and Blacks.
