Numerous writers for this site have frequently pointed out that Vermont is on the wrong tract economically. As if to underscore that contention, a recent article in the online edition of Vermont Business Magazine has pointed ou that Vermont’s median household income has been falling for over a decade:
Real median household income in Vermont fell slightly over the last year (2011-2012) and from 2000 to 2012, according to a report by the US Census. Vermont incomes fell 1.6 percent in both of those measures. Vermont median household income was $53,840 in 2000 and $52,977 in 2012.
Meanwhile, the United States as a whole showed no statistically significant change between the 2011 American Community Survey (ACS) and the 2012 ACS (see Table Below).
