It turns out that “middle class” means many different things in various American cities. In Detroit, the median annual family income is $30,000; in San Jose, it’s a whopping $103,000, according to an NPR analysis. Ouch. Other surprises: While New York and LA may be the favorite stomping grounds of the mega-rich, the analysis seems to show that the middle class still has a robust presence in both cities–more so than in Seattle or San Francisco, at least.
In Baltimore, the median income is a nice, even $50,000– significantly below the national median family income, which is $64,000.
