Median Annual Wages
Louisville’s economic development efforts must create jobs that keep families out of poverty and those that create higher incomes to drive economic prosperity. Factors like high wage job attainment, unemployment, and affordable housing indicate the state of the job market and the ability of residents to achieve financial independence. The main metric for 21st-century workforce and talent is median wage. Louisville has a target goal of being in the top 50% of its peers in median wage.
