    Here is the current stats:
    Median household income - 186,000 HKD
    186,000/12=15,500 HKD

    source:
    Standard of living in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I wouldn't say Wikipedia is a credible source of information.

    PDLM's figures are likely to be directly from an official government agency.

    It's best not to counter with 5-year-old data.

    Please look at the census data I linked to previously. Yes, it's from the 2006 census, but it's better than your random guesswork...

    Doesn't really matter what the 'average' is as each person is living in their own individual circumstances. The average figure isn't really helpful.
