Income statistics not looking too good for Central Oregon, according the the front page article in the Bulletin this morning.
Average household earned $5088 less in 2012 than they did in 2009.
But households earning more than $100,000 stayed the same, so all that loss was below them.
The number of households earning less than $25,000 increased by 33%. I repeat, by 33%.
Those without health insurance increased by 8.3% while statewide the percentage decreased by 10.4%.
Just read those statistics again. Take them in.
Pretty awful for Central Oregon especially when compared to the rest of the state.
