The median household income on Long Island is among the top in New York, according to the Census Bureau.

The latest numbers show that Nassau is again first in income in the state with a median household income of $108,000.

Suffolk County was third on the list, at nearly $95,000.

Only Putnam County beat out Suffolk.

Despite the high incomes, the data also shows that more than 31 percent of Long Islanders with mortgages spend 35 percent or more of their income on monthly housing costs.
