Bloomberg Businessweek recently released a list of America’s Richest Zip Codes in 2011. To identify the 50 richest areas in the U.S. for Businessweek.com, Little Rock data company Gadberry Group looked at all Zip Codes in the U.S. with more than 100 households and ranked them by the average income and net worth of their households. The area’s population change since 2000 was also taken into consideration, though only as a minor factor, and no areas with a decrease in number of households, where wealth might become less concentrated, were included.
