    Median male income and median female income are both substantially higher than median family income and median household income. How does that statistic come into being? I'd love to see that graphed out.

    The town has just 31 people. 20 female, 11 male. Five of the males make more than $36K and five make less. Ten of the females make more than $23K, and ten make less. Yet half of the ten families make less than $5K, and half of the fifteen households (including the ten families) make less than $5,833.

    I find those statistics remarkable. Five men and ten women making well over $20K, but only 7 households breaking $6K per year. Almost unbelievable.

    Did you fail stats? Median and average are not equivalents.
