KC Sees Sharp Increase in Income
The median household income in Kansas City grew 6 percent between 2014 and 2015 according to the latest census data released this morning. Adjusted for inflation, our metro median income grew from $57,062 to $60,502.
These are good numbers to be sure, but even more impressive is the fact that this 6 percent increase ranks us 5th nationally among the 53 largest metros (those with a population of at least 1 million).
