Twenty-five of Idaho's 44 counties saw a decrease in median household income between 2012 and 2013, according to the Idaho Department of Labor

Idaho's median household income during that period was $46,767, while the corresponding income nationwide was just over $53,000. Statewide, the decrease—about 0.5 percent—was about $240 per year.

Nine counties posted household incomes that exceeded the statewide average, including Blaine County, which had the highest: $64,042 in 2013, up just less than $4,000 from 2012. Madison County posted the greatest decrease in its median household income, falling to $32,059. That's down more than $1,700 from 2012, or 5.1 percent.

Four other states, including Nevada, Florida, Georgia and Arizona, recorded greater decreases in median household income than Idaho's 0.5 percent.
