2016 American Community Survey: Frisco households are wealthier than ever


More Frisco households make $200,000 or more annually than any other income range, according to the 2016 American Community Survey by the U.S. Census Bureau.

This is the first time that most Frisco households have made $200,000 or more annually—the largest income range measured by the ACS—since the ACS was implemented.

Nearly 25 percent of Frisco households made at least $200,000 a year in 2016. In 2015, the largest income level was $100,000 to $149,999, with 20.6 percent of households making that income range, while 20.3 percent made at least $200,000.

The $100,000 to $149,999 income range had been the largest since at least 2005. That range dropped the most between 2014 and 2015 when it went from 27.9 percent of households to 20.6 percent.

The median annual household income in 2016 was $124,829, up nearly $2,000 from 2015.

The 2016 ACS data was released earlier this month.
