These heat maps depict the median income of households throughout Florida by census block group for the year 2000 or 2010.
According to Census Bureau, the median household income includes the income of the householder and all other individuals 15 years or older in the household regardless of whether or not they are related to the householder.
The median household income figures you see in this heat map were calculated using samples of the population; they are not based on 100% counts. During the 2000 census, the Census Bureau contacted 1 in 6 residents in census block groups throughout the United States with a survey regarding their median household income and other characteristics; their answers were compiled to generate the data presented by the 2000 median household income map. In the 2010 census, the Census Bureau switched to a different methodology as a part of the American Community Survey (ACS). The ACS data are based on samples of the population that are collected over a 60 month period. In both cases, the data is subject to a margin of error which is not depicted in the heat maps.

As you might imagine, a high median household income tends to indicate affluence and a generally nice neighborhood. High median household income is often the result of a strong job market and growing local economy. However, a high household income is also associated with higher home prices and sometimes, a higher cost of living. It's also important to note that lower median household income values do not necessarily indicate that a neighborhood is poorly maintained.
The median household incomes for the 2000 heat map has been adjusted for inflation up to the year 2010.
Remember that this information is a snapshot in time and has not been adjusted to account for larger macroeconomic shifts that would affect income in some areas. Some places might have experienced localized job losses over the past few years while others might have become home to new industries. This would cause the median household income in these areas to shift up or down independently of everywhere else.
