2016 Survey


WMATA’s 2016 Rail Passenger Survey

The average income of riders who work in the surrounding areas of a Metrorail station are estimated from survey data collected on weekday PM peak entry at that station. The average income of riders who live in the surrounding areas of a Metrorail station are estimated from survey data collected during weekday AM peak entry at that station.

The 2016 survey collects income by tiers. I averaged the midpoints of each tier (except for “100k+” which became $150,000), and applied a [weight] variable in calculation.

Columbia Height’s average Home income is slightly more than Petworth’s: $97,149 compared to $96,816. Farragut North’s average Work income exceeds both at $116,166.
