A PORTRAIT OF OUR REGION
A Community Indicator Project for Regional Action

The Mid-Hudson Valley regional profile provides a wealth of information at your fingertips to help inform decision-making and planning in order to drive positive community change for the seven-county region as a whole.

This web tool includes 59 separate indicators that provide insight into the trends of our community over time. Together, the collection of community indicators tells the story about where we are as a community and the direction in which we are heading.

In recent years, this project has expanded to cover additional counties (Columbia, Greene, Putnam and Sullivan) and added indicators, including data on drug-related deaths that show the spike in opioid abuse, living wage estimates and the share of our residents who are foreign-born.

MID-HUDSON VALLEY REGIONAL OVERVIEW

 

While the Mid-Hudson Valley continues to be a strong region of New York State with below average poverty and above average incomes, living there is becoming harder. The cost of housing and inflationary pressures more generally have pushed living expenses beyond what many residents can afford to pay.

Comparing the region’s median household income to living wage estimates shows that costs are outpacing incomes. In 2012-16, the regional median income of $76,500 exceeded the 2015 living wage for a variety of household types – including a single parent with two children ($68,400). By 2017-21, the median income rose to $80,700, but living wages for most household types were higher – topping out at $113,000 for a family of four (two earning adults and two children).
