(WISH) – Middle class incomes grew faster in 2015 than any year in modern history.

Americans saw a raise in 2015 for the first time since 2007.

After years of watching their incomes go nowhere, America’s middle class finally got a big raise last year.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the median household income rose to $56,516 in 2015, up 5.2% from 2014.

The poverty rate also fell.
