What's sad is that I'm higher than my city's amount by a fairly good amount, and based on the lifestyle I choose to live, it's barely enough given taxes and other costs.

It's a bit surprising to see Santa Barbara, SLO, and Santa Cruz so low down the list, considering how much it costs to live in many parts of those counties.

Yeah, I am not surprised about SLO county. It is REALLY hard to scratch out a living around here, unless you have lived here 25 years and have a job with the State or PG&E.

And this data is before big dip in average personal income in the US in 2009. The 2009 data will undoubtedly be considerably lower...

per job?

Or maybe it is household income or per capita income.

Surprised the average of Sacramento is only $1000 less than Orange or LA. Must be a lot of poor people on those counties bringing the average down.

I think the data also shows how much different of a place Sacramento is than the rest of the central valley.
