A recently released U.S. Census Bureau report lists Bellevue as the 12th wealthiest city in Washington with a median family income of $98,342. The survey looked at cities with more than 20,000 residents.

The statistics were representative of income by family group, not household. They show the median income for a given town or city, meaning they represent the income of a family with equal numbers of families making more and less than it.

Other Eastside cities scoring high on the list are:

1. Mercer Island, $146,476.

2. Sammamish, $141,712

5. Redmond, $114,330

6. Issaquah $112,558

7. Kirkland, $107,122

Seattle was 16th on the list with a median family income of $91,898.

The median family income in the United States is $62,735, according to the most recent American Community Survey results.
