The richest town in each of New Jersey’s 21 counties, ranked
Reposted from NJ.com
Where you live in New Jersey can make a big difference in the definition of rich.
To an Atlantic County resident, $70,000 a year is a lot.
To someone in Bergen County, it could be barely middle class.
The median household income in New Jersey was $73,700 in the 2012-2016 Census snapshot. But that number varies dramatically between Hunterdon County, with a median of $108,000, and Cumberland County, where the median is $49,500. So where are people landing the biggest paychecks in each county?
These are the towns with the highest median incomes. The residents in these towns earned 30 percent to 250 percent more than the rest of their area. Go through the list to find the richest town in your county.
A note about the data: Median incomes from the 2012-2016 American Community Survey by the U.S. Census, sometimes compared to the 2007-2011 snapshot. Towns with a high margin of error were excluded.
