The first quintile is bottom 20% of households by income, the second quintile contains households between 20% and 40% of income (the next 20%), and so on. The fifth quintile is the top 20% of households by income. Within this group, and also reported in the ACS, is the top 5% of households.

Gaps in household median income by the racial and ethnic group of the householder are also summarized.
