How do Spokane household incomes compare to other Washington Counties?

Charts are from IndicatorsNorthwest.org.

The following charts show inflation adjusted median household income from the late 1980s to 2009. Residents of Spokane and much of the United States are no better off today than they were in the late 1980s.

Spokane is the blue line at the bottom of the chart. Lower is bad.  Spokane is well below the median for Washington and the median for the United States.

King County is the top line. Higher is good.

What was going on in Benton County in the late 1980s?
