Medians are calculated using 2,500 U.S. dollars income intervals.

Medians falling in the upper open-ended interval are plugged with “$250,000.” Before 2009, the upper open-ended interval was 100,000 U.S. dollars and a plug of “$100,000” was used. 1990-2001: White, not Hispanic.
2002-2018: White alone, not Hispanic. 1990-2001: Black.
