Chester County is the highest-earning county in Pennsylvania, according to a new report by Stacker. 

To determine the counties that earn the most in the Keystone State and nationwide, Stacker used data from the U.S. Census Bureau to rank them by 2019’s five-year estimated median household income. 

In Chester County, the median household income is $100,214. This is significantly higher than both the state (62.3 percent) and national (59.5 percent) median. 

More than half of households in the county – or 50.1 percent – earn more than $100,000. This puts it in first place in Pennsylvania and at No. 38 nationwide. 

All of Philadelphia’s collar counties ranked highly, taking the four top spots. Montgomery County came in second, Bucks County placed third, and Delaware County ranked fourth.
