We need to keep in mind that Per Capita Income means you take all the income and divide it by every man, woman and child-so the total average is going to look lower than how wealthy the town actually is. Especially in towns with lots of kids.

Per Capita figures favor places with not many kids, and lots of singles.

Median Household figures favor places with 2-income earning families with children.

Example:
American Canyon Per Capita Income: $23,391
American Canyon Median Household Income: $65,620

Very rich places will rank high no matter what figure we look at. LOL

So judging by my income and the fact that we're a two-person household, I would be right in the middle in East Palo Alto. Excuse me while I go cry.

I am surprised that San Mateo county actually has less people than the city of San Francisco. Also that San Benito county is considered the Bay Area but not Yolo\ Sacramento\ San Joaquin\ Stanislaus\ Lake & Merced [all of which are closer or as close to San Francisco as San Benito county].

It's a statistical area that's why. San Benito isn't really the Bay Area but in terms of statistics it is. The Central Valley has it's own and those other counties you mentioned are part of that. Statistical areas are almost always larger than the actual metro area that carries the name. Just look at the LA statistical area which includes Orange and Ventura Counties as well as the IE.
