There are 3,144 counties and equivalents in the United States. The source of the data is the US Census Bureau and the data is current as of the indicated year. My parents house is worth like $700,000 it’s near the Kentlands in Gaithersburg, MD; they paid $120,000 for it in 1983. My sister and brother-in-law spent $950,000 on their house in Darnestown MD in 2012. It’s worth $1.3 million now. And that’s not even counting Potomac Maryland where Dan Snyder used to live, Alonzo Morning, Sugar Ray Leonard, Mike Tyson & others used to have houses or currently do. Ted Leonsis lives in Potomac Maryland. The Lerners live in Chevy Chase, Md. Just saying, really wealthy people live in MoCo. Virginia has more as it has more people & more big business plus more high ranking career military jobs but, Maryland is not far off. There are 272,000 millionaires in Virginia & 222,000 in Maryland. Yup. I know. Some of the wealthiest ones are around DC. Including MoCo. Was just going by the list which compares the income vs. the cost of living (which provides the disposable income). As for "really wealthy people" I can list the same for VA (the #1 for MD would come in around #3 or #4 in VA). Except we're only talking a handful of individuals for VA and MD. We're talking about the average income and disposable income vs. the other counties. And 4 of the VA counties in NoVa are in the top 7. Which provides a better pull than MD counties (where the fanbase has eroded anyway). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
