150 k sounds about right.
BHM is so detached from the real world sometimes

Dallas and Houston have affluent  AA communities as well, but the cost of living here is much lower. 

 Whats the source of this list, Pity?



I would love for someone to post this. I'm interested in living in the South. I'm pretty sure health care careers pay about the same or only slightly less than the Mid-Atlantic. Right?

I think its just subjective. My parents made $100,000 each and managed investment properties, and I don't consider my upbringing even close to "rich." That's upper middle class at best for the Mid-Atlantic region. I think its the "rich" part that's throwing people off.

If they used the median to measure central tendency then this fits nicely.
Yah know it isn't affected as much by extreme outliers so it's a nice comfy number .
I remember a thread about race and income and people were shocked at how " low" the income ranges were for white-Asian pairings ( the couple with the highest income ranges)

When you consider how the rest of the US is living it sounds about right.
Not just 1% or 10%-ers .
That's where I feel the detachment comes in.

Lot of America ain't BMF BHM

there aren't certain doctors, top lawyers, business men/women that make well above 150k? 

i know they're talking about average.. but somethin about this list doesnt seem right.. 
forbes said the medium income in the richest county was 120k..

Honestly, not surprised by CA, MD, and NY being on top. Strong federal and private business organizations in these areas.
