How Much Do You Make (April 2011 Results)
|Annual Income||% of PFStock Readers|
|less than $50k||8%|
|$250k and higher||18%|
Note that the percentages do not add up to 100% due to rounding. From these statistics, I found it interesting that a large percentage of my readers fall into the higher income categories. More than 60% of PFStock readers have an income greater than $100,000 per year. Does anybody have a comment on this statement?
The last time that I published annual income survey results was in my July 2010 post on the topic. I also found similar results then. Because the 2011 and 2010 surveys covered different income ranges, it is not straightforward to make a side-by-side comparison. However, I made some simplifying assumptions and constructed this table from the two polls.
Annual income of PFStock readers 2010 vs. 2011
|Annual Income||2010 Survey||2011 Survey|
|less than $50k||17%||8%|
|$150k and higher||34%||37%|
*Note: For the 2010 survey, the $75k-$124k range was split and divided between the $50k-99k and $100k-$249k ranges. The percentages do not add up to 100% due to rounding.
From these statistics, I see that there is a bit of a shift toward the higher income ranges. Does this mean that the economy is starting to recover in 2011?
