I just read an article that said in 2016, the median household income in the US was $59,000. That's way higher than I thought! In said in order to be considered 'upper income', you have to make double that. In the city I live in, the median is $110,000. That one I'm not so surprised at. It is funny, I make less than the median here, but I feel like I am 'upper income'. If I want something, I buy it, and I don't have to check to see if I can afford it. I save about half of my paycheck without really trying. I'm on track to retire before I'm anywhere near my 60s, possibly before I hit 50. I guess upper income means something more than that. Is it measured by stuff? Like, buying expensive cars and big houses?
