  • "average" is a really bad measurement when examining salaries because the spread and deviation is so wide that the data is skewed. I'd be more interested in the mode.

  • Actually an average is just an idea of around what most other people make. It doesnt have to be one way or the other. That is why it is an average. Maybe I should just ask what does is your(whoever answers) yearly family salary and average it myself so new question......

  • I think it really depends on where you live. The average family income where I live is about $47,000 per year.

  • 70,00 and when I was working 130,000 and yes, if you are calculating it in the proper way, average is not just an idea. it is an actual formula that is skewed by outliers.

  • Depends on the area. My husband makes $107,000 a year plus a 50k bonus that is about average where we live now. We are moving to the Midwest where that would be way above average.
