Are You Wealthier Than the Average LinkedIn User? [Infographic]

On the 10th anniversary of the professional network, LinkedIn has published an infographic that profiles its growing user base of affluent, educated, and — if you ask them — influential users.

LinkedIn members in the U.S. have an average household income of $83,000 per year and twice the purchasing power of the average U.S. consumer, the company said. In addition, 3 million are MBA graduates,  1.39 million are Ivy League alumni, and 7 million are C-level executives, presidents, and VPs.

By comparison, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that in 2011, the real median household income in the U.S.(adjusted for inflation) was $50,054, which is also the most recent data available.

More statistics on the company’s user base and company pages, as well as its marketing solutions, are in the infographic below.
