Census figures show income holding in Michigan

Lead in text: 
Household median income in state was virtually unchanged at $46,859 in 2012
Michigan's economy is showing signs of recovery, with median incomes holding steady after years of decline, but the number of people in poverty has stagnated, new Census data released today show. For the state, it marked the first time since 2007 that incomes didn't drop significantly, though they remain well below pre-recession levels.
