JACKSON, Wyo. — Government data reveals fiscal wealth to be on the rise at regions already synonymous with riches, and Jackson Hole tops the list.
According to a Bloomberg report, per-capita income in Teton County, Wyoming reaches almost $252,000 dollars on average, and is the only county to achieve that sum in data going back to 1969.
In national rankings of U.S. counties by income level compiled in 2008 and again in 2018, Teton County is revealed to surpass New York County, NY, and even Aspen Colorado’s Pitkin County, to head-up a national Top 3 on both polling occasions. However, the repeat podium appearance by Teton County also tandems the cost-of-living question for the area’s residents.
As of most recent United States census, 10,429 persons populate Jackson Hole, or over 3,5oo people per square mile. Comparative to 2016 data, this is a 1.3% population increase.
On a per-capita income basis, which accounts for population change, 2018 marks the largest share of counties nationally with a positive increase since 1981, according to Bloomberg analysis.
Across America, according to estimates released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, total personal income increased in over 3,000 counties, or 97% of the total. The estimates factor wages, proprietors’ income, dividends, interest, rents, and government benefits by county residents.
