In 2016, the median household cash income of black married couples in the U.S. was $74,000. In addition, the vast majority of U.S. households earn or receive non-cash income like healthcare, housing, or food from employers or governments. In comparison, the 2016 median household cash income of black households with divorced people was $34,000, separated people was $28,000, and never-married people was $30,000. The portion of black children living in homes with two parents decreased from 67% in 1960 to 40% in 2017. Marital status, educational attainment, literacy, math skills, and career choices account for virtually all of the income inequality between white and black households.
