Since everyone complained about my first list. I decided to just one up it with an even better list of the 100 Wealthiest Counties based on total number of residents that make over $200,000 dollars plus each year. Yes, Maryland has a number of counties on the list. I'll do the break down after this post. I'll also do the DC/Area Break-Down after this post as well. To put how wealthy these counties are into perspective.

The US has 4,544,384 households that make over $200,000 a year.

There are 112,611,029 households in the United States

Quick Math

4.5/112.6 = 4% of income earners make that amount of money, which means the rest of the 96% make considerably less.

The exact figure for most US households is $51,425, which means these households make at least almost 4x's more than most Americans.

These are all Ranked According to Data taken from 2005-2009 Census Data

Income, even high income, has damned little to do with wealth.

Not really. It just seems that way.

What it does is lead to people confusing the ability to make the payment
for a Mercedes or a home in Potomac with having the wealth to own them.
