Study shows inflation adjusted median incomes in all but two NE Tenn. counties drop more than 10%

In more than one-third of the nation’s counties, the inflation-adjusted median income has dropped by 10% or more since 2000, according to a Stateline analysis. In many of them, the drop in income can be traced to the disappearance of manufacturing jobs.

There’s a script error in the interactive may but after some poking around I found the data for NE Tenn. Counties and ranked them by order of the largest losses: Sullivan down 18.7%; Greene down14.1%; Carter down 12.5%; Unicoi down 12%; Hawkins down 11.9%; Washington down 7.8%; Johnson down 4.9%.
