US household incomes fell more in the two years following the end of the recession than during the downturn itself, according to a New York Times report published on its website.

A study by two former Census Bureau officials said inflation-adjusted income fell 6.7 percent, to $49,909, between June 2009 — when the recession ended — and June 2011, the newspaper said.
