|Unit of measurement||
Every year, the Census Bureau collects data on how much money households obtain from 50 different sources, all of which we label “income.” Earnings, primarily wages and salary from a job, are usually a big source of income. Other sources of income include Social Security payments, pensions, child support, public assistance, annuities, money derived from rental properties, interest and dividends. Only full-time, year-round workers with earnings are included.
