Default What is the richest county in Georgia?

I was wondering because I heard people in real life say it is Columbia County.

Haha no way. More than likely it is Forsyth County north of Atlanta. Cobb County in metro Atlanta is wealthy as well.

There are a million different "rankings", but Forsyth County always lands near the top regardless of how the "research" is done. That would be my first guess.

Depends on how you rank it. In terms of shear wealth it would most likley be fulton. There are many wealthy neighborhoods in atlanta such as Midtown and ansley park. Buckhead is one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the country and is in atlanta and thus fulton county. There are also wealthy suburbs in fulton county.

If you where looking in terms of average wealth fulton would fair lower because it also has some poor neighborhoods.

Oconee County is definitely one of the wealthiest but Fulton would prabably be the wealthiest because Buckhead is located in Fulton and Buckhead is very wealthy. Oconee is a better place to live though as it was in the top 10 best places to live in country and the schools are ranked in the top 100 in the entire country.
