High-Income Households Concentrated in Cities

This map, provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, shows the number of high-income households in each county. The data is based on the American Community Survey years of 2007 through 2011 and on income received from January 2006 to November 2011.

During this time, the top 5 percent of households received at least $191,469 annually, and this is what the bureau is calling “high income.”

Not surprisingly, as the bureau notes, the concentration of high-income households mirrors the concentration of population.
