Loudoun had the highest median income last year among counties with 250,000 residents or more, with the average Loudoun household making about $107,000 a year, according to numbers released last month.It is a remarkable testament to the people and reiliency of our county that we retain our lofty position in such a survey. So many of our fellow Americans and Virginians are losing their job, and their houses. We would be wise to consider our good fortune even as we consider the important questions of how to secure our county's financial stability.
Loudoun first earned that distinction in 2005 and was overtaken by Fairfax County in 2006. In 2007, Loudoun was about on par with Fairfax, where the median income was about $105,000. The numbers are not statistically different, according to the Census Bureau analysis, which is based on a sample. - LoudounExtra
