York County: $78,234
Poquoson: $78,191
James City County: $70,487
Chesapeake: $63,016
Virginia Beach: $61,234
Isle of Wight County: $58,840
Suffolk: $57,546
Gloucester County: $56,123
Mathews County: $54,431
Hampton: $46,462
Newport News: $44,887
Williamsburg: $43,777
Portsmouth: $42,940

It is indeed odd that Mathews is that high, considering that its population has been declining and is so far out as an exurb with the only major thing being a fishing industry.

Probably people that commute way out there, trying to escape the "city."

Some other report showed that gov't related $$ is the top paying industry in Hampton Roads. It ranks higher than business executive pay on average.

I'm not surprised. Growing up in Yorktown, most of my friends' parents either had high-paying jobs at NASA or somewhere in Oyster Point, or were high-ranking military people at Langley or Ft. Eustis.
