SmartAsset, a financial technology company, recently conducted an interactive survey highlighting the wealthiest counties across the United States.

The company’s unique approach involved comparing all U.S. counties using three key metrics: investment income, property value, and median income. By weighing these factors, they calculated a Wealth Index that provides a comprehensive view of the areas in the U.S. amassing the most wealth.

Here are the top 10 wealthiest counties in Ohio according to their survey:

Rank County Median Income Investment Income Median Home Value Overall Wealth Index
1 Delaware $116,284 $37,227 $465,696 33.23
2 Geauga $90,285 $45,584 $328,895 25.70
3 Warren $95,709 $32,255 $355,713 25.39
4 Union $96,634 $25,447 $361,271 24.88
5 Medina $82,894 $22,005 $302,806 22.22
6 Holmes $69,454 $24,962 $293,827 22.06
7 Fairfield $77,241 $21,595 $309,668 21.33
8 Franklin $65,999 $42,274 $279,022 19.75
9 Licking $72,771 $23,380 $295,516 19.66
10 Greene $75,901 $26,884 $253,338 19.53

For a broader perspective, the state of Ohio overall has a median income of $61,938, an average investment income of $23,439, and a median home value of $195,536.

This data-driven approach to identifying wealth accumulation offers valuable insights for investors, policy makers, and individuals alike. It underscores the economic health of these regions, and provides a clear snapshot of the distribution of wealth in Ohio.

Delaware County puts the county’s economic health this way, “Ideally situated just north of our state’s capital Columbus, Delaware County is centrally located with quick, easy access to both rural and urban areas, several airports, railways, and major interstate highways. Delaware County offers businesses plentiful land ready for development, plus a variety of neighborhood communities and job opportunities for families looking to relocate.”
