Demographic Targeting

Is there a way to target audience by demographics such as income level or interest? I could've sworn there was but I can't find the feature. I currently have a campaign that is set to Search Network Only.

Demographic targeting for Search ads was announced by Google, but hasn't   (fully)  rolled out yet.

It is for certain countries. Go under the Settings tab->Locations-Advanced Search->Then select Location Groups->Demographics. From there, you can enter a location and an income tier.Demographics.PNG

Under Household income tier, where it says;

Top 10%
11-20%
21-30%

If I choose, '11-20%', are they saying top 20% ? or just those with income b/w the top 11-20%? Thus excluding everyone else? If the former, then this is poorly worded

The 11-20% is exactly what it says it is. If you want to target the top 20%, you would have to do both the Top 10% and 11-20%.

Note; household income is not a demographic targeting per se (gender, age, parental status...)  but  comes under / classified   as a Geo targeting
