These Are the Wealthiest Congressional Districts Across America

@EDITOR — please add more links related to income (find articles with “richest/poorest” in the title) and politics/government. Please get rid of the call-out links to retirement/real estate studies. — Syd

Median income varies from state to state, but it also varies greatly within a state itself — and your congressional voting district could actually say a lot about how wealthy your area is.

GOBankingRates identified the wealthiest congressional district in every state based on the highest median household income. We also identified the political party representing each of the wealthy districts. But just because a congressional district is the richest in a state, it doesn’t mean that its constituents are rolling in dough: In 12 states, the median household income in the wealthiest congressional district is below the national median income of $57,617.

Click through to see how the wealthiest district in your state stacks up.
