How We Determined The Richest Places In Ohio For 2018

Map Of The Richest Places To Live In Ohio
The first thing that comes to most people’s minds when they think about determining the richest places is to simply identify personal incomes. After all, rich people have really high salaries.

However, we don’t believe that one statistic wholly encompasses what it means to be one of the “richest places”. So we looked at this set of criteria from the newly released 2012-2016 American Community Survey:

  • Poverty Level
  • Median Household Income
  • Unemployment Rate

Median household income is the most digestible way to understand how rich a place really is. The unemployment rate tries to capture the prospects for more people to become rich. If more people are employed, the richer the future looks.

After we collected the data for all 254 places with more than 5,000 people in Ohio, we ranked each place from 1 to 254 for each of the criteria, with 1 being the richest.

We then averaged all the rankings for a place into a “Rich Score” with the place having the lowest overall Rich Score, Powell, crowned the “Richest Place In Ohio For 2018”.

One thought on “These Are The 10 Richest Cities In Ohio For 2018

  1. This list is very flawed. Indian Hill, OH in Cincinnati has a median income of $250,000 and a few Cities in Celeveland come close to 250 as well. I would recommend re-doing this list and including the ACTUAL richest places in Ohio.
