African-headed households were found to have an average annual income of
R60,613 [US$7,023] in 2011, while white-headed households had the highest average
household income at R365,134 [US$42,309] per annum. Incomes of black South African households however have surged

black middle class. Overall, average household incomes now stand at R103,204 [US$11,960], up from R48,385 [US$5,608] in 2001."
