Top 10 metro areas

Nielsen ranked the top 10 metro areas in 2015 with the highest penetration of black households earning more than $100,000.

1. Washington, D.C., 7.2 percent.

2. Baltimore, 5.1 percent.

3. Norfolk, Va., 3.9 percent.

4. Atlanta, 3.6 percent.

5. Richmond-Petersburg, Va., 3.5 percent.

6. Baton Rouge, La., 3.4 percent.

7. Memphis, Tenn., 3.4 percent.

8. New York, 3.1 percent.

9. Columbus, Ga., 3 percent.

10. Augusta-Aiken, Ga.-S.C., 2.9 percent.
This is always interesting to me...as I see the Chesapeake Crescent from BMore to DC to Richmond to Norfolk/VA Beach represented on here but I don't see either Raleigh or Charlotte on here.

That's mainly because of the government/military presence in the area in the Chesapeake. That's why Fayetteville, NC has a higher Black median household income than either Charlotte or Durham. Raleigh's is a little higher, but it also has the government presence being a state capital.

That as you can imagine is only a fraction of the black professional class in the Boston area.

I think he/she means is there a large percentage of the total population of people in Boston that make up the black population of middle class people like in DC, ATL, and NYC?

We really should be using area median income (AMI) for this versus the $100,000 metric. D.C.'s AMI is $76,440. That is the number we should be using for middle class.

Well, the issue may be that cost of living plays a part in terms of what is considered to be "middle class". As mentioned before, I know that Pew Research uses 2/3rds to double the median household income as the range for "middle class". That makes sense, as median just means middle.


This may help: Are you in the US middle class? Try our income calculator | Pew Research Center


This is below the calculator: Your size-adjusted household income and the cost of living in your area are the factors we use to determine your income tier. Middle-income households – those with an income that is two-thirds to double the U.S. median household income


As for Boston, this post has some information and this is without including some places in that metro: http://www.city-data.com/forum/45339007-post3160.html

That is flawed though because cost of living varies significantly across metro area's. The eastern side of the metro area has sunbelt prices in DC.

But there's still a common floor when it comes to COL within metro areas, and all metro areas have those intraregional variances.

These are some interesting articles that I ran across that may shed some light on this:

Black households earn more in the Mid-Atlantic, but there is no simple explanation why | StatChat
Why are Black households wealthier in Virginia? | StatChat
The Rise and Fall of Black Wall Street - The Atlantic
