Per capita income is the average income computed for every man, woman and child in a particular group. Household income includes the income of the householder and all other individuals 15 years old and over in the household, whether they are related to the householder or not. This measure can serve as an indicator of a city’s economic well-being.  The Median Household Income is the mid-range, meaning there are an equal number of households with incomes above and below this number.


Data is provide by the American Community Survey.

When adjusted to 2018 dollars, the Fort Worth median household income and per capita remains relatively flat for the past 10 years. Fort Worth's median household income continues to be above the state and national values, while Fort Worth's per capita income closely tracks behind the state and national values. Income is sensitive to the ups and downs of the economy. However, the city is committed to efforts to grow the per capita and median household income for residents over time.
