Wilmington underperformed in comparison to the rest of Delaware in terms of higher education achievement in 2010. The United States Census Bureau found that 26.3% of Wilmington residents aged 25 years and older had attained a Bachelor's degree compared to 28.5% for Delaware as a whole. The median household income in Wilmington was $39,761 compared to $60,119 for the state of Delaware. The poverty rate in Wilmington was 23.5% compared to 11.5% for the entire state.
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.
