As the Free Beacon reported:
Median household income declined to $53,657 in 2014, a figure 6.5 percent lower than in 2007, the year before the recession began, and 1.5 percent lower than last year, according to data released Wednesday from the U.S. Census Bureau.
From 2007 to 2014, median household incomes declined by $3,700. From 2013 to 2014, the decline was $805.
According to the Census, median household income divides the income distribution into two, so half of incomes are greater, and half of incomes are less than the median.
