SE Queens and parts of Manhattan are probably up there as well. Maybe even parts of N/NE Bronx as well.

I wonder what the numbers are for other metro areas. Net worth of white households in D.C. region is 81 times that of black households - Washington Post

PG is included; the focus is the DC MSA. Read the actual study: The Color of Wealth in the Nation

No it wasn't, actually.

Page 52

"In 2014, a telephone survey was conducted in the Washington DC, metropolitan area (including parts of Alexandria and Arlington County, Virginia as well as Frederick and Montgomery County, Maryland and in four other metropolitan areas (Boston, Miami, Tulsa, and Los Angeles)."

So basically they cherry picked what part of the metro they wanted to, in order to get a misleading point across. Most of the stats in this deal with DC proper, and when they are talking stats from the "metro area" they purposely don't include PG. Again flawed data.

Not true; by metropolitan area they mean MSA, which includes PG County:

"We begin by using US census data to compare homeownership rates in the Washington, DC, metropolitan statistical area (MSA) with other MSAs throughout the United States before, during, and afterthe Great Recession." (p. 51).

Some of the statistics mentioned did focus on the city exclusively but the overall picture here is of the MSA.
