Today the Census Bureau released the results of the 2015 American Community Survey, which allows comparison of incomes city by city. To find those cities where median household incomes are rising the fastest, look to the South. Among America’s 50 biggest metropolitan areas, the biggest household income gains were witnessed in Nashville, Tenn., Birmingham, Ala., and Atlanta.

Other Southern cities with outsize gains include Memphis, Tenn., Orlando, Fla., Austin, Texas, and Raleigh, N.C.. That means seven of the 15 big cities growing faster than 5% are in the South.


The top 10

rank...city...2015 household income...% change
  1. ...Nashville...$57,985...10.0%
  2. ...Birmingham... $51,459...9.3%
  3. ...Atlanta...$60,219...7.1%
  4. ...San Francisco...$88,518...6.2%
  5. ...Kansas City...$60,502...6.0%
  6. ...Portland OR...$63,850...5.9%
  7. ...Orlando...$51,077...5.8%
  8. ...Milwaukee...$56,247...5.7%
  9. ...Memphis...$48,524...5.7%
  10. ...Seattle...$75,331...5.6%

The Nashville metro area now has a higher average household income than cities such as Charlotte, Tampa, Jacksonville, Miami, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Saint Louis, Cincinnati, Louisville, and San Antonio.

Not surpised. Nashville is exploding. What surpised me is that the Nashville metro area now has a higher average household income than cities such as Charlotte, Tampa, Jacksonville, Miami, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Saint Louis, Cincinnati, Louisville, and San Antonio.

That's insane when you think of it. Miami, Charlotte, etc. It's crazy.

I never thought of nashville as a rich city
