Data shows that annual income depends heavily on an individual’s educational attainment, race, ethnicity, gender, and even location. Geography is a substantial factor in earning potential: According to the USDA, those with a high school diploma or more education earn more in urban settings than rural settings. Florida cities are no different.

Large businesses tend to operate out of cities, which also have larger markets and thus more demand for production and the jobs that come with it.

Stacker compiled a list of the highest-earning cities in Florida using data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Cities are ranked by 2019 5-year estimate median household income and all have at least 3,000 households. Estero probably would have made the list, but that’s where I live and my poor self probably dragged down the median income level and knocked us off the list. So yes Estero, blame me. Three other Southwest Florida cities made the list, and just to end the suspense – no. Lehigh Acres is not on this list.
