Ask an Economist
Question: 

Hi, I gross $52,500 a year in Suffolk County Long Island, NY. How does my personal income compare to other income earners on Long Island? Somewhere in the middle or on the low side?

Answer: 

None of us here have direct expertise on this issue. You may look at: http://www.longislandindex.org/data_posts/household-income-distribution/ for more information. Your income is roughly at the median for US households, meaning about 50% of US households earn more than you.
