Ball State report shows residents earned '97 pay

Johnson County residents earned in 2010 what the rest of the nation was making on average in the 1990s.

The average pay of county residents was $35,228 in 2010, which was the last year the researchers had data for, and matched the national average in 1997, according to a Ball State University study. Residents’ average income has fallen behind typical national earnings since then.

Indiana as a whole has stayed behind the U.S. average earnings since 1964.
