It must either be a slow news day or another example of media's relentless pursuit to become less relevant.

My cursory review of the story and the report from which it was generated does not enable me to determine whether these figures are gross income or adjusted gross income. I wonder if any statistics "wonk" knows the answer. Thank you.

This is another example of "us vs. them," "rich vs. poor," class warfare/jealousy, and similar. Despite all the rhetoric about treating everybody equally, regardless of X, Y, Z, A, ... interest in this stuff proves otherwise. It does nothing to help bridge any gap between people groups. I agree with Oren. This information is without any merit without context and specifics. Maybe the good news is that it the information is not in the form of a poll.

Wonk????? My bet is AGI based on tax returns.

I agree with the other posts. Is it necessary? I think we all know Upper St. Clair's median income is way above any state or national average.
