Camden County underperformed in comparison to the rest of New Jersey in terms of its median household income based on the 2010 U.S. Census. The median household income in Camden County was $61,824 compared to $71,180 for the state of New Jersey. The poverty rate in Camden County was 11.8% compared to 9.4% for the entire state. The US Census also found that 28.2% of Camden County residents aged 25 years and older attained a bachelor's degree compared to 35.0% in New Jersey.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent. This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
