  Income inequality graphic 2 Median household income in Colorado is up slightly, latest U.S. Census figures show, with a 2.4 percent increase in 2013 over 2012. Median household income was $57,430 in 2012 and was $58,823 in 2013, according to Census data. The bad news, however, is that median household income is still well below pre-recession levels. In 2007, median household income was $62,030 in inflation-adjusted dollars, meaning that the most recent figures show incomes have decreased 5.2 percent since 2007.
