slides: The 25 Wealthiest Towns in Central Massachusetts

Saturday, September 21, 2013

 

Massachusetts may be the third wealthiest state in the union, but, much like the rest of the country, its wealth is not spread evenly throughout. The majority is concentrated in Nantucket, Norfolk, and Middlesex counties. Worcester County ranks 9th out of the 14 counties in the Bay State, with Franklin and Hampden counties rounding of the list as the least wealthy Massachusetts counties.

That is not to say there is a total lack of wealth in Central Massachusetts. A handful of cities and towns rank high among Massachusetts’s more than 300 cities and towns. Southborough, Harvard, and Bolton both come in high in that overall list.

GoLocal looked at the 2010 Census figures for every city and town to rank Worcester County’s 25 wealthiest cities and towns based on median family income. See which towns make the list, and compare them on other wealth factors, including per capita income, and median household income.

Note on definitions: A family "consists of two or more people (one of whom is the householder) related by birth, marriage, or adoption residing in the same housing unit," according to the United States Census.  A household is defined differently by the United States Census and "consists of all people who occupy a housing unit regardless of relationship. A household may consist of a person living alone or multiple unrelated individuals or families living together."
