San Jose and Oakland Rep the Bay Area on Super Zip Map

New, 2 comments

The Washington Post released a map highlighting America's "super zips" - those with the highest concentrations of college educated people and the highest incomes. Surprisingly, despite having 6 super zip codes, the city of San Francisco did not make the list of the top-10 largest clusters of elite zips. In fact, the Bay Area is only represented by San Jose and Oakland, which rank at #3 and #5.

What makes a "super zip?" A zip code ranking in the 95th percentile or higher, in which the typical household income is $120,272, and 68 percent of adults hold college degrees.
