Which Was the Only State to See a Drop in Median Income?

According to US Census Bureau figures released last week, only one state in the country saw a drop in median household income in 2007. This same state also saw a rise in poverty. Can you guess which state stands alone in its losses?

Don't feel too bad, Michigan. CA's unemployment rate is on the rise. Misery loves company...

Wow, I thought my home state of Alabama was always the poorest. Way to not be the poorest, Alabama! Sorry for you in Michigan though. Hey, I'll be supporting the MI economy in a couple of weeks with my camping trip. I'm doing my part as a good American. :-)

As a former Michigander, I knew the answer to this question. It's sad to go home and see how run-down things are looking.

Exactly what Indieglam said - as a resident of Michigan, that wasn't a surprise. I live in Houghton, MI (in the Upper Peninsula) where the median household income is just above $20,000. =\

That's sad. I got it right, but it made me think, will it soon be "Which country" and the US is the answer?

I was going to guess Ohio before I saw the options, but once I saw the options, I knew it was Michigan. Hopefully new industries will be built there and the economy can be revitalized.
