Supplementary notes

Median denotes the midpoint of a group—in this case the point at which 50% of the households have more wealth and 50% have less. Unlike averages, medians are not sensitive to extreme values of wealth. The median describes the experience of those “in the middle of the pack.”
Net worth: Assets minus debt.
