Super Zips

November 17, 2013

The Washington Post has an interesting interactive site showing demographics by zip code. I think the thrust of its article is about the concentration of income and college degrees around Washington, D.C. but it’s an interesting widget to explore with.

Washington: A world apart

This map highlights in yellow the nation’s Super Zips — those ranking highest on income and college education. The largest collection of Super Zips is around Washington, D.C. Learn more about this metric.

These are the top ten areas where "Super Zips" are clustered: Washington, D.C., E. Manhattan, San Jose, Boston, Oakland, Bridgeport, Newark, Chicago, N. of Los Angeles, Long Island.

Wow, Newark edged out Chicago? That’s gotta sting.
