A look at household incomes around the region
I recently looked into how Stafford County is ranked 7th in highest median household incomes across the country. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why, rather, it’s a combination of factors that contribute to this: commuting the Northern Virginia, jobs located around Quantico, high job growth in the county, high levels of education, etc.
But how do other counties stack up? I haven’t ranked all the counties in the state, but I did look at some statistics for counties in our area. Here’s some of the initial information that I found, according to U.S. Census data. Is there anything that you’re interested in seeing for the counties in the area? I’ll see what I can find.
|Population||Households||Persons/household||Per capita income||Median household income||Below poverty level|
|King George County||23,584||8,194||2.65||$32,630||$76,241||7.10%|
