How much do you make? Are you wondering where your income ranks compared to other parts of your state?
Stacker compiled a list of the highest-earning cities in every state. Here's what they said about it and how they did it:
Data shows that annual income depends heavily on an individual’s educational attainment, race, ethnicity, gender, and even location. Geography is a substantial factor in earning potential: According to the USDA, those with a high school diploma or more education earn more in urban settings than rural settings. Large businesses tend to operate out of cities, which also have larger markets and thus more demand for production and the jobs that come with it. Stacker compiled a list of the highest-earning cities in Texas using data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Cities are ranked by 2019 5-year estimate median household income and all have at least 3,000 households.
In Texas, the highest-earning city is West University Place. This city has a median household income of over $250,000, which is nearly 300% above the national median.
Here's a look at the top 5 highest-earning cities in Texas:
