What did the new U.S. Census data say about the median household income in Southern California?

Between 2000 and 2007, median household income increased somewhat in Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties, but declined slightly in Orange and Ventura counties. Statewide, income also declined slightly. But Orange and Ventura counties continued to have significantly higher housing incomes. In 2007, L.A.
