LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. - New U.S. Census data suggest some areas in the D.C. region are doing better than others.
In Loudoun County, median income is the highest at about $120,000 a year -- an 8 percent increase from four years ago. The District also increased 8 percent to $61,000.
Demographers tell The Examiner that the increases can be attributed to a growing population of young professionals.
Prince William County also saw a big jump, while Montgomery and Fairfax counties, along with Alexandria, saw big drops in household income.
Experts attribute the declines to growth in lower-paying service jobs.
