New census figures released on Monday show that one in seven Washington-region households have incomes that put them in the top 5 percent in the nation, The Washington Post reported.
Only the metro areas of Bridgeport, Conn., and San Jose, Calif., have higher concentrations of high-income households.
Washington, with 14 percent of all households in the top 5 percent, has a higher share than the areas surrounding San Francisco and New York City.
