About the district
Woodbridge Township outperformed state rates for poverty and median income while lagging behind the state rate for higher education achievement in 2010. The town had a poverty rate of 5.4% in the 2010 U.S. Census while the state rate was 9.4%. The 2010 U.S. Census calculated Woodbridge Township's median income at $78,446 while the state median income was $71,180. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (34.6%) is below the state average (35%).
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.
