U.S.

The Richest City Of Each State.

Published

on

Your hometown carries a lot of weight. Just naming the city, town, or suburb where you grew up immediately tells others something about you. Maybe it’s a suburban community renowned for the good school district and club soccer teams; perhaps it’s a bustling urban neighborhood filled with trendy bars and restaurants. Either way, the character of your hometown helps new acquaintances gain an initial understanding of who you are.

This principle is especially true for the 50 places on this list. Each town holds the distinction of being the richest location in its state. Stacker used the most recent U.S. Census Bureau Five-Year American Community Survey data, last updated in December 2019, to pull crucial information about each town, including the unemployment rate and median household income. The places are ranked by the median household income, and ties are broken by the percentage of people annually earning more than $200,000. Any towns with a population smaller than 1,000 people were omitted. Additionally, the U.S. Census Bureau’s statistics do not show specific median incomes or earnings after $250,000, so those numbers are just designated as $250,000+.
