   ¹”Household group” is not tightly defined, unfortunately. Remember that info piled together like this can usually benefit from more clarification.

   ² Income figures have been rounded off to the nearest thousand.. The “$333 K” (or $333,000) figure is 6.5 times the median national household income of $51,000. (The “median” is the middle number if you stack up all numbers from lowest to highest.)
