Last week, we asked: Has your household income gone up, gone down or stayed the same over the past three years? Responses were as follows: 57% responded that their income has gone up, while 28% said it stayed the same and 15% answered that their income went down.


“As a semi-retired consultant, I have many more and diverse sources of income than when I was working full-time in a corporate position 10 years ago. Corporate pension, Social Security, consulting and investment income all combine to increase household income.”

“Gone up, but not enough.”

“Less than inflation.”
