CHICAGO - Many Illinois household incomes have fallen over the past two years.
The Census Bureau says the average family in Illinois made about $1,100 less last year than it did prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last year, the median household income in Illinois was just over $72,000.
In Chicago, incomes averaged around $78,000.
In August, a report revealed the salary needed to afford a home in Chicago — and it's probably not what you'd expect.
