The U.S. Census took the median incomes of all the states in 2005, 2006 and 2007 and came up with an average median income for those years.

Arizona ranks 29th among states when it comes to Median Household Income. That's just one position better than at the 2000 Census when we were in the 30th spot. Median Household Income means that half the households in the state have income less than the stated amount, and half of the household have more income than the stated amount.
