The median U.S. household income as of June 2014 was approximately $53,891. This figure represented a 3.8 percent increase over the 2013 U.S. household income levels, but is still below the income levels prior to the Great Recession.
In June 2009, the average U.S. household income was approximately $55,589. The stagnation of U.S. household income between 2009 and 2014 is attributed to the high unemployment during the recovery period. Certain demographics in the United States saw their average income begin to rebound during the recovery, such as the 25 to 34 year old age group with an average 2014 income of $54,835.
