Guess What DC? We're Rich...And Smart!

DC Metro Area Is "Money / Education Central"

Guess what? We’re rich and smart! That is, according to the Census data and reported in the post this morning, The DC Metro area is among the nations richest and most educated.Although kudos in the “educated department” are spread out among many counties, the rich factor clearly points to both Fairfax and Loudon. According the the data, these are the only two counties in the US where the median house-hold income surpasses $100,000. Of course, an honorable mention, must go to Bethesda as Money Magazine’s Top Earning Town in the country with a median household income $170,000.

Anyone else surprised there isn’t another county in the United States with a six figure household income. San Francisco is a “county”, and adjacent Marin County(Tiburon and the likes...) is one of the most affluent in the US. I would’ve thought more so than both Fairfax and Loudon.

If I were a little more caffeinated right now, I’d find the census report and let you know how other metro areas across counties fared. But there’s always time for follow up.

Until then, I hope this was somewhat interesting (even to one person!).

Have great days, and for those of you living anywhere east of Nevada, I can safety say “stay warm out there”...

Thoughts and comments always welcome!
