During the five years through 2013, Wake County had a median annual household income of $66,006, the highest in the state although not especially high compared to the nation. The higher incomes were due in large part to the area’s well-educated workforce. Nearly half of Wake County’s adult residents had at least a bachelor’s degree between 2009 and the end of 2013, one of the highest rates nationwide.
