Median household income is one indicator of the state's economic prosperity. In 2014, the state's median income was lower than its historic high in 1999 ($66,500 in 2014 dollars). Despite gains since 2011, it has not fully recovered from the 2007-2009 economic recession. Currently, Minnesota has the 9th highest median household income in the nation and outperforms the national median income ($53,200) by more than $10,000.
This economic prosperity is not shared across all groups, however. Median incomes of Black- and American Indian-headed households hovered around $30,000 in 2014 while White- and Asian-headed households neared and surpassed $65,000.
This measure does not take into account household size or the number of income earners per household.
