by Maureen McCabe on November 8, 2007

The study is by County, they don’t break it down by the actual suburb but Franklin County suburbs of Columbus are among the 100 wealthiest counties in the US according to a report by Biz Journals at number 78.   Delaware County is even higher in the list than Franklin at number 23.

No Ohio county made the top ten list.  Mostly the top ten list is counties that are suburbs of New York City… the  middle Atlantic (Maryland and Virginia), one California county  and one county in Colorado.
