The Washington region stands among the richest enclaves in the country, with its own Great Falls nestled among the U.S.’s top 10 wealthiest ZIP codes. Four of the country’s 10 most educated ZIP codes lie within our borders, topped only by Cambridge, Massachusetts. And two District ZIP codes house among the highest concentrations of management workers nationwide.
But as wealthy as our region is, we also have ZIP codes where the median household income is below the national median. Ditto for the median home value, despite our famously robust local housing market. In these ZIPs, per-capita incomes are below the national average of $31,786 and fewer than 10% of the adult population has graduate or professional degrees, while less than a third work in management.
Our zip code 20001 is referenced throughout.
