    So I was just curious about how these numbers relate to other Census statistics, but when I go looking at ACS2012 data, I get different numbers. Using the 1-year release, I get mostly the same cities at the top, but for example, I find Jacksonville, NC’s median income for women to be 34,387 (table B19326). Which table and release did you use to produce this graphic?

    Joe, thanks for the question. The data that we used to create this graphic can be found in table dp03 on the census website.

  • Joe Germuska

    That’s exactly it. Those numbers match up. Thanks!
    (although I find six more cities where the women’s median income is > than the men’s)
