From the Star Ledger:
Two of the nation’s wealthiest, highly educated demographic clusters – also known as “Super Zips” – are located in New Jersey, according to a report from The Washington Post.
Areas surrounding the cities of Newark and Trenton rank among the nation’s 15 largest Super Zip collections, the report said.
The Washington Post analyzed the most recent census data to find zip codes where people rank highest in a combination of income and education. To determine the rankings, The Post combined the average median household income with how many adults with college degrees live in the area.
For example, in Livingston, a town about 15 minutes west of Newark, the median household income is $133,143 and 70 percent of residents are college graduates.
Just north of Trenton in Princeton, the median household is $122,921 and 76 percent of residents have college degrees.
Elsewhere around the Garden State, Hoboken and two areas in Jersey City were also identified as Super Zips. In Bergen County, Ridgewood was the only town to qualify.
