Where the 1% Live
While many Americans struggle to find jobs, balance their budget and get by with less, some folks are still living high on the hog. Looking at the most recent Census Bureau data from 2010, we chose the 15 counties in the U.S. with the highest median household income. With three counties exceeding the $100,000 mark, life seems pretty good in these areas, even as the U.S. median household income declined 2.3% from 2009 to 2010.
