Real Median Household Income

Real Median Household Income is the level of household income in the U.S. where, adjusted for consumer price inflation, half of all households have income above that level and half have income below.

It generally follows the business cycle, so a high reading will usually accompany a top in the economy and a low reading will accompany a bottom.
