I hear ya.
If "middle" means "average" then i think it's a fair assumption (without actually doing the math) that the average income in American could be $250 k a year.
Of course, statisticians can manipulate variables to get any outcome they want. For example, using a "median" instead of an 'average' and getting rid of the highest and lowest figures to get a more "accurate" reading.
